I'm diarizing my "new" method of vine burying inspired by the Patons who cover each axial with a pot of very wet soil. We know that each axial will produce a secondary root coming from the bottom of the vine. The Patons have managed to grow roots out of the top as well, literally doubling the number of secondary roots. My method was to heavily cover each vine so that the top root will have soil to grow in. My burying soil has been pure compost from the local municipal composting facility.
