I treat them exactly the same as dahlia's from cuttings then they make nice bushy plants. I do mine when they have made 4 or 5 pairs of leaves.
Even if you dont pinch them they  are still inclined to side shoot and become bushy
When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

I succumbed today to buying some tubers having lost mine last year in the winter. I kept trying to resist so ended up too late for seeds and had to buy tubers ???
