    'Je t'ai même frictionné les racines à grand coup de remontant!'

    Someone is talking about nursing a plant back to life. The bit I have a problem with is ...à grand coup de remontant! I'm not sure what that means.

    I get that the first bit is 'I've even rubbed your roots...' but the rest?
