Re: Re: Re: Pam's new pix on the tour/hardy hibs


It's generally considered not such a good idea to leave stems of bulbous
(tuberous) plants.  Thats where insects get in and overwinter.  May not be
much of a problem for hibs, I don't know.  If plant markers don't stay put
try a thin bamboo stake.  I use them to support my Hibiscus 'Kopper King'
and just leave the stake in for the next year.
