Bob I have a large number of Dracunculas growing on my fence lines,last
year one of my neighbours rang the local health inspectors,he complained
that there was something dead in my place.LOL I never told them what it
was .I understand that removal of the pistol will take care of the
problem ,in the meantime the place is for sale and I am moving ,with my
bulbs to a bigger property ,and no neighbours ,
regards to all.
