Too big of tubers is a different issue than too big of clump. I'm going to grow less of Woodlands Wildthing and Carmen Fiesta as the tubers are huge. I would do the same thing with Nick Sr but I don't think I've ever sold tubers as I want more of it every year. Big tubers are costly to ship and more labor and supplies to store (I wrap).

Too many tubers? Probably Blizzard is guilty. So many little tubers and everyone already has it so there isnt much to do with them.

Cornel varieties are great as they are easy to dig. They can almost be pulled out. I can have an inexperienced staff have at it and they won't ruin a thing. They are more work to wash as the clumps are compact. They are somewhat hard to divide, but eyes and necks are clear so it's not too bad.
