Yes, got new corms. Grew sparaxis a few years ago,but have forgotten when I used to plant them.
I am getting on age wise. Have to take the easy option.A dose of creosote for the stump. then a cup of tea for me.
Yes you are right, it was 12 months before it began to rot and I was able to remove the stump, but the method I used was successful and saved me a lot of hard work.
Someone asked a similar question a few weeks back. What I did was to drill numerous deep holes in the trunk and apply creosote into the holes and sit back and be patient. I was informed that Roundup in the holes also has the same desired effect.
Wish I had one to cut.Sowed 3 times nothing.Same with carrots and spring onions. Never had this happen before. Few other allotment holders have had the same problem. Never mind, theres always next year.....
When is the time to plant Babiana and Sparaxis bulbs? Thanks.
I use a small stone.
Drill numerous deep holes in the stump, fill holes with creosote or Round up. Sit back and have a cup of tea.
