Re: aviary/now Gunnera

    Wish we had read George's book first. Ray just ripped it out again and
put down paper and then mulch hopefully it won't get any sun light and get
the hint. Watch out for the slugs and snails they turn the leaves into lace
in quick order. It was attractive only once a year. To bad I didn't consult
the group before getting it. We learn from our garden mistakes, but
sometimes it involves a fair amount of work to correct them.
Thanks for the information Marge.
