Talking about paw paw suckers Alex asked "could you briefly describe how you
transplant the suckers?  The success stories I've heard involve severing
them from the main tree, but leaving them in the ground for another season
before digging them up."

I just dig them up in late fall, severing the main root and plant them in
about 60 percent shade.  Maybe they succeed because they are growing in well
drained, almost pure humus encouraging more than normal fine root
production- who knows?
