Jim , I think it might get bigger if I put mulch higher upon it before the first below 28F temperatures ( the stalks are hardy to upper 20'sF ) . Just a few inches below the mulch line it stays green , so if I put a three foot pile of mulch on it it would probably start off a lot bigger and get big faster going into next summer .
As you know , they slow down a lot as soon as the temperatures go down from the summer heat . During the summer each leaf is successively bigger and all that comes to a halt when it gets more like fall , or when 50's come into the picture . Therefore , if it could get bigger earlier it would be bigger as the summer heat kicks in and be bigger near the end of summer . I may experiment with that this winter and see how much live tissue I can keep on it from winter into the spring , and then see how huge it can get by October .
