Gunnera for Hollyeves


This is the Gunnera with flower before and after cutting off the flower as I read cutting the flower off makes the leaves bigger.

Before cutting the flower off

After the flower was cut off.

The largest leaf is now 20inch wide.

Its looking good thrupenny, hasnt it done well since you planted it... the leaves look a good size. Have 5 flowers on mine and the leaves still get bigger the only thing being in a pot the flowers tend to push the leaves over the side a bit.... :)
