    I often read that it is a common problem. But in Quebec it seems like they grow unleggy for many years!

    The secret? Here it is: Most of us speak French to our plants... I'm just kidding of course!

    Maybe climate? Maybe our cooler Summers help ? Rare drought? And many of my friends add compost to our plants, burrying the crown a little every year or so.
