When I was a kid I was given a small bit of the back garden.
I grew Carrots, Radishes and Spring Onions.

Actually when you said as a kid you had been given a smalll bit of the back garden, I thought you was going to say you had sold it.

Being a bit pedantic, when they say small plants will grow around its base, I wonder do they mean from seeds it has dropped , in which case if the flowers are outside the greenhouse none maybe will fall on the ground to grow,; or do they mean small plants will grow from the roots of the old plant, in which case it is incorrect to say the plant has died.

Perhaps it subdivides underground, like potatoes do.
I wonder why the small plants don't grow larger.

Maybe the small plants do grow larger in the next growing seaon.
We had a nicely growing Cordyline tree which was killed off a couple of years ago by a severe winter. The trunk died but soon after, at leat 10 new shoots came up all of which are growing well now at about five feet high. No seed involved.
