Moving rhubarb

Posted: 29/05/2014 at 10:22

Hi i got this from RHS i would think moving and dividing would be done at the same time,  

Division

Division will guarantee a plant identical to the parent and is the most common method of propagation. It is also good practice to divide established crowns about once every five years if they have become weak or overcrowded. Lift crowns between autumn and early spring (usually in November).

Use a spade to divide the crown into sections each retaining a portion of the rhizome (thickened root) and at least one growing point. Sections from the outer part are better than the centres of old plants. Discard any old or decayed parts of the crown.  Replant straight away or wrap in damp sacking until ready to plant.

Nearly right Dove ,close enough,The exact origin of the term is unclear. It may refer to a "spudder," a shovel-like tool used to harvest potatoes, or to a wooden barrel sorters would put small potatoes into when sorting for larger ones. Hows that, take your pick,im going fa the shovel

Hi again, nitrogen is for leaf and stem growth,phosphorous for roots,shoots,and buds and potash for flowers and fruiting and general hardiness,perhaps this might help.

MAGNOLIA PROBLEM

Hi Steve, i went  to RHS Stellata,on the net perhaps if you try it and check that your set up is correct for your Magy it might help,we have about 7 mags the stellatta about 4 years old (they are slow growers at first )is just superb  this year, we fed on FBB and plenty of water ,it also has no other trees / shrubs, near by competing for its water  Good luck
