Have alook at recent question about this

Titch i think you mean the extra roots that grow from the stem? you can earth these up if you want to help stabilize the plant :)

I'll lock this thread as there is a very recent one in existance on the same subject.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
