Joyce, the questions Daintiness is asking are absolutely the right ones ,we are buying a house with very similar problems, its not that difficult to sort out so don't go worrying yourself, try to find the answers and come back ,when you bought the property this would have been noted and looked at by your solicitor, if that was too long ago or you cant remember it not a problem follow Daintiness ,s advise and no worries.if your not ( like me ) a computer person start with Cit,advice

My Passion Flower is wilting... Help!

Posted: 23/08/2013 at 11:19
hi i had the same prob so i took cuttings as best i could, and they are all ok so the problem didn't carry on, at the same time as they grew i fed the cuttings half with Baby bio and half with 50/1 Nettle tea ( the dry way ) just to see which was the better for me, bio ok no probs at all, nettle tea plants have loved it and are strong and twice as big , the original plant came back after the cutting and is now ok,

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,
