This top root is the result of a visit with Ian Paton in Lymington England this spring. We always knew there was a root growing down from each leaf node but the Patons have been teaching us that there is also a root growing out of the top of the node thereby doubling the number of roots feeding the pumpkin. To achieve this you must bury the vines with a higher and larger amount of soil. In my case I used pure compost from the local landfill fortified with mycorrhizae.
