Rhubarb, a native of Siberia was originally found growing on the banks of the river Volga.

This tells us two important things about the plant???s requirements.
1. Cold
2. Water
The third import requirement is Nitrogen. It seems Sam they very much need lots of manure and cold weather, also first year no cropping, And you Do need 15 plants if you eat as much as me ,and it makes wonderful jam Rhubarb and ginger is to die for honest,

Hi Smoking,iv noticed the car booters here in Wales put water pots under their trestles or whatever,this brings the numerous dogs over for a drink along with their owners and their money ,,not daft these Welsh ,you might point this out to these brocanters it works ,they also seem to put some toys for sale on the grass even if there selling something entirely different "brings the kiddies over with their parents see" Alan Sugar could learn a thing or two here here in Tenby believe me,

hi all iv recently acquired this,
??? Do Councils have a statutory duty to provide allotments?
Yes. If the council believes that there is a demand for allotments; they have a statutory duty to provide a sufficient number of plots. Section 23 of the Small Holdings and Allotments Act 1908. planning policy guidance from the government 2007, very interesting for areas who don't have allotments. BUT
it doesn't give a set time for supplying once they agree the needs is there
love to see it tried
