The 'pip' is the 'just underground' rhizome and can be lifted and replanted
at any time from October to March. They grow well in partial shade,
especially if the ground is compost rich and moist.

they may not grow well for you cause you are pampering them too much. ours grow
under the lilac. not rich, not moist. I have transplanted dirt clumps of them
tossed onto compost heaps where they were growing just fine. the only thing I
say is I have never seen them thrive in full sun in the middle of a lawn.

Sorry -- forgot to thank you, Brian, for the info. You will see me out
beside the house in October lifting pips.
Mine are growing on the N side of the house in mostly shade and mostly
clay (Zone 7b). I had them all dug up (and tossed, alas) a number of
years ago, but they crept back.
