Don, if one is to dig up an entire plant it would be easy to find by the 
previous years base, but if one wants to get just periferal plants that will 
come - up how do you find them before they come to the surface? or do  you 
just have to completely dig up all dirt down to the roots( say in the 
pathway) and hope the sections of root chosen will produce a plant after it 
is transplanted and it warms up? Thanks, Del
