A person can inherit
plants. Oh the time and effort and how beautiful, how
tough, resistant and hardy. "They survived the drought
of '73." And there's a sort of glow from a previous
landholder. My own advice to anyone who might inherit
what's loosely referred to as Pampas Grass, is "Fire,
Swords and Roundup."
And I know I'm
not alone here. There are some who feel the same way about
Privet Hedging. The routine of care begins and overtime a
certain resentment builds, there's an occasional relocation,
and with Pampas Grass that's not easy, then the years gather
and a degree of what I'll call "hatred" develops.
