I've received this link from a couple of people about feeding plants 
whisky, in this case Narcissus, to keep them dwarf or prevent them from 
getting too tall and floppy. It reminded me of some of our mealy bug 
discussions. Anyone tried this?

This experiment was on potted plants and it doesn't really say whether the 
plants had more than one drink. Do you suppose a shot of whisky would help 
them hold their heads up in the rain?

Where we may go two whole days without rain so that I got to see a few 
Sparaxis  and Moraea villosa in bloom after all and  a few Tulipa 
batalinii. Rain is forecast for sometime Friday.
