My soil had a sandy base but we have added compost every year. The water supply this year is from one of those soaker hoses. But previously it was watered from overhead sprinklers.
I gave it two good feedings of fish fertilizer this spring
and still it didn’t perk up.
see picture....I sure hope I did this right. let me know if you can view picture.http://s195.photobucket.com/albums/z279/llpic-2007/
I just harvested most of the leaves in hopes it would sprout larger ones with second growth.
The plant looks not so bad but it really is kind of puny. The green markers near plant are only 6" in total and part is already in the ground. So you can see that the stalks are very short. Don’t know whether the skinny stalks can be seen in the picture you view.
