Hi Mike,

Here in the Bay Area (Fremont, Calif) I know of two cases (one in my own
garden) of DIABOLIQUE doing absoultely *nothing*. I planted it last September,
and it has just sat there and sulked. No bloom, no increase, no fan, no
nuttin'. Just sat there with the trimmed fan that came on the rx slowly
shrinking. Everything else around it has done fine. No explanation. Finally
about two weeks ago I said (to myself) enough is enough, and sliced off the
remains of the fan in hopes it would trigger it to send out some increased.
We'll see, and I let you all know.
