|What you see in front is just some out-of-control asparagus. It got a haircut too.|
It had basically become an aromatic, flowering shrub that was overtaking everything around it.
So, I did what any sensible person would do...
|Anyone remember Medusa?|
I gave it a significant trim and ripped it out of the ground.
However, I didn't want to lose it entirely... rather, I wanted to move it to a location where it might be easier to maintain (having it enclosed in the netting basically involved me having to climb into the box to trim it, hence the flowering and extreme size). I have absolutely no idea if what I did was safe or healthy for the plant, but I essentially transplanted it to another part of our yard, where it can be neighbors with some other unwieldy, aromatic plants.
|L to R: thyme, tarragon, sage, lavender|
PS: You should never let herbs turn into flowers! It is important to trim all of them. Thyme, basil, and oregano are all apt to flower and it's best to catch them soon and cut them off.
