Labels or forget

lol it's always great to label things, but sometimes it's impossible for me. I buy plants from places like car boot sales and think ooooooo thats pretty - I'll 'ave that! Soooooooooo then the end of the year rolls round, I dig up said plant, get my label and trusty marker pen out, and write........ oh heck, I don't actually know what this plant is!! So, I try and be descriptive. I write "daisy-thing" and "white flowers" on the label, and wander off, tutting to myself.

If you regularly water them, they won't have to punch their roots down to find water. I water them for the first month or so, then they're on their own (water once a week in a very dry spell but that's it).

And sow the seed into the ground. They HATE root disturbance

Surely any plant only has a certain amount of stored energy? If it not able to make more, it would die eventually. So maybe just 'starve' the bamboo?
