Our Forums Have Closed

Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,
The Old Farmer's Almanac

My Mother planted some Elephant Ears a few years ago. The first year they were big & beautiful; last year my neighbor wanted me to plant a moon flower and I did. The moon flower took over and we thought had killed the elephant ear out, so I dug up all the moon flower (what a pain) and the elephant ears are coming back. The problem is we have something eating it. They are taking huge bites & we put a tomato steak around it and that didn't help. We don't see any turtles around it, so can anyone tell me what to do...we did use 7 powder
