Punk not dead nexium caps 40mg Chris Clayton from Cornwall sent me a picture of an ailing dracaena, well over 10 years old, wide, lofty and branching, that has until now flowered wonderfully every year. This year it flowered and immediately started to drop its “fronds”, and now looks unsightly. I have a theory about these tender aliens that seem to cope with our climate even though they are not supposed to. They are fine for a few years, maybe while they are small enough to be sheltered by other plants, but once they become tall enough to be affected by cold winds and frost, their life may be cut suddenly short. Not what you want to read, Chris, but this plant has had its day. Off with its head. And, while you are at it, out with its roots.
