Growing fast now.

Fabulous. My gunnera does not grow so high and we have it for 10 years. It was in place when we moved in this place 10 years ago. Looks healthy though. There must be different varieties. I love them but one has to have lots of space in the garden.

Hi Klahanie. Yes there are a few varieties, the two large ones are g/ manicata and g/ tinctoria. I have both there, the manicata grows to twice my height and the leaves have nearly a 6 ft spread. As you say takes a lot of space.

Do you water them a lot? Mine are in very moist spot at the bottom of the hill. Or did I already ask you that question?

I often leave the hose running on them from an underground storage tank but we have had a lot of rain so far this year so it is a bit boggy.
