hi glad to hear fro you again. hope is all well at your end. :o)

I was told to wait till they've bloomed and the foliage dies back a bit. I grew mine in tubs and last year and instead of digging them all up at once, I felt down into the compost and picked off as many as I needed for each day's meal. It worked well.
