Johnny your on the right forum, lots of our heads have gone very soft, some are soft all the way down to the ground sadly,
but there is hope of pups in the spring time, in fact we could be over run with them by June :lol: :lol: :lol:

Derick, I just give it chic poo and water well in and stand back, they do like a lot to drink while growing in the summer. Sorry about yours Dicas, no sign of pups here yet.

Thanks Derrick & Nick. No surprise really though, it didn't look or do it's best last year after the bad Winter. :(

Do you mean this one Derrick, this was last year after the tops died on mine. Never had a sucker before, then this :lol: This was next door's garden.

Just a reminder of how rampant they can be :lol:
