A love hate relationship.
Is there ever a plant or plants you allowed to jerk around for years until it finally pissed you off to the point of no return?! Mine,was a row of Crinums in the front yard by the sidewalk. For 14 years,I had to cut off the constant yellowing tips,not being able to mow around them,weedeat,tripping in the 3ft long leaves,and cutting them down every fall.So this week,I took the plunge and dug them all out! I tried last year but the soil was too dry.So I thought I would try with one... It came out.So I thought,why not another?And before I knew it,all were up! Most separated rather easy.These were large bulbs too. About the size of my hand.They hadnt been disturbed in 14 years I know of. They were about a ft down in the ground.2 clumps wouldnt split. They weighed about 50 pounds each.I hauled those off up town. The rest,I bagged up and dropped off at a plant lovers house. About 80 bulbs came out! After the ground settles down,I hope grass will grow back in there again.
