Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb

Love this rhubarb thread.  I just found a new plant coming up.  We got a second plot at the allotment and lots of surprises coming up.  Almost dug over now as previous tenants let it go a bit last year.  I don't know what sort they are, but looking forward to pulling it.  Am forcing one lot of Rhubarb at the mo.  Must check it and see how it's doing.

Weather lovely here, I can only see the sun through the office window!  Apparently it is a little chilly.  Weekend weather looks lovely. 

Greenhouse loving the sunshine and a few of my seeds are through!  Woop Woop, spring is well and truly springing!! or sprung?

I am sitting at work, thoroughly bored as nothing to so, but have just looked at all the lovely pictures.  Cheered me up no end.  I must get out and take more in our garden.  I have a fine array of daffs and lots of other new shoots sprouting up. 

I am planning to have a little re-design in the garden, so perhaps I can use this time to gather some inspiration.

Yuk.  Just read the above comments!

Something similar happened last year I remember, but seemed to have stopped on my most recent visit.

I think a line should be drawn_______________________________!!!!

Back to more pleasant conversation!

Oh golly, I am such an ignoramous when it comes to technical things such as PH levels, NPK's, good soils, bad soils etc etc! I can just about manage to understand drainage! I'm afraid I'm not a very scientific gardener (and still a relative newbie to it too), that I tend to just whack em in and see if it works! I haven't killed anything yet though

Me too Heather.  I just try my best and usually it works.  I'm not very scientific either.  I have read most of these posts though, so some of it should filter to my brain at some point!

Hi Stacey

I did very similar last year with a newly planted Clematis.  I left it to see if it would survive and it did.  It wasn't the biggest of plants last year but it is still surviving!!

Well done Tracey!! 

I've got forest flame, just gave it a fairly serious chop! It was looking a bit old and worn. Lots of lovely rich red shoots coming out now.
