    omg... I'm sorry to hear about your plants, Louis, but this thread has me laughing hysterically. I can just picture me trying to be mad at my kids if I ever saw them with giant leaves on their heads!

    (after reading a different thread about stinky plants, my first thoughts went to Bruce, too! These weren't "clean cuts", were they?)

    :lemmetell Ok! Ok! I admit that I did want them to fall into the lake, and that I was happy when I found out that they were being decapitated, but I swear, I would never (until they start stinking) take the pruning shears and clip all the green life off of their tiny little tops.

    It weren't me! I dunno what the heck happened. I think it was the squirrels.

    Cheers!

    ....gone away for just a few hours and everybody thinks I killed the stinkies....argh.

    Those stinkies remind me of a chore I used to do with my mother when I was a ten year old girl. Some of these species grow wild in my father's property and every year, when the young leaves/growth appear, my mother and I will go and collect them, stem included. My mother chop them up and feed them to her pigs. I never really actually see them re sprouting, but I guess they do because otherwise they would be extinct by now.

    Louis, if you spread bloodmeal around them, keep an eye on the dogs. Mine dig up bulbs that have been planted with bloodmeal ferts because it smells just so appetizing....

    Sorry for the loss of your stinky babie's heads. That would piss me off too.

    Thanks, RS, I didn't know that.

    Boy, *that* would have taken the cake, wouldn't it? Protect em from squirrels so they can get eaten by dogs.

    Sheesh! At this rate, it'll be a miracle if even one makes it to blooming size.









    One better. That's all *I* gotta say....
