Chick, I make the cuts across the roots at an angle, not cutting the roots all the way through. If the root still has vitality, it will, with time send up some new eyes and growth. Think of it as a natural tissue culture, but from the roots. Doesn't work always with all roots, but given the right moisture and roots/varieties, can send up too many. Try it.

I have heard from many folks that it doesn't and can't work, but we have been doing it for quite some time.
