Jerusalem artichokes

I have some really big bulbs. I think they need to be cut , there were 5 to a pound. After cutting, do I need to let the cut sides heal over, or can they just go in the ground. How long to heal?x

I don’t think I would recommend cutting them this season. You will need to ensure that each segment and a shoot eye, and root nodules. This can be done after the season is over. This way you can see root sites and shoot sites very clearly. I would wait to plant them after they have healed some as well. This can take a few days or a week or so even. This will help prevent any rot from happening. This article will give you more information on growing these: [1]
