An English In Kentucky


















 Wednesday March 18th 2015 Tim Candler9


   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.
