Marygold 2    I think you will find your bin is too wet,if you return them into the same bin they will just do the same thing, this was a prob on here a short time ago, i found the problem being discussed on Utube and the answer was to add dry stuff to the mix and keep it dryer, most people who did this agreed dryer is better and the worms were happier,Nothing like a happy pile of worms is there.

Well, I never knew that!

Hi Richard, if you go to the RHS the info is really easy to follow ,just one thing is after you have planted its a good idea to leave the first years crop to die back into the crown to give it a better start and rhubarb loves the cold it comes from Siberia originally,raised beds are great and if your near the coast surround the crowns with seaweed as slugs and snails love to dine out on them but dont like seaweed,if not them maybe pellets will do   Good luck Rich,,

Morning all iv been talking with Stevep5b and Bob the G and a few others who are helping,we both have an old Apple tree and trying to sort it out the best way poss, Im wondering if I dont go down the road of third pruning and decide to  cut and burn then plant a Bramley seedling , just how close to the original roots can i plant,Im not sure how long old roots take to rot , or would they be a hindrance for the new one,or do they stop taking in water quickly and die. I have no experience of doing this before so help if poss, The reason i want to plant close to the old one is obviously in that part of the garden im short of room,and i cant dig the roots out due to an op a short time ago so lazy im not , so thats the prob at the moment any help is good  Many thanks from dull Norfolk
