Many thanks for replying so quickly.

 

I read that I should add manure to the ground prior to planting.     Am going to Spain next weekend for a week and was consisdering picking up some horse manure tomorow and digging that in and then leaving it to plant the rhubarb when I get home.    Would that help?

SOWING NOW

I have just returned from holiday but before going I sowed some seeds expecting them to germinate and grow while I was away.     They did  and grew to about 12 - 18 nch tall and very legy so no good and had to throw them away.     I was thinking about re sowing some January King and Ormskirk cabages  plus some all year  round CAULIFOWER. seeds   Would this be ok or should I try to buy some plants from a GC,if they have any.

Just planted 25 broad beans in peat pots and a 1/2  tray of summer cabbage 1/2 tray of leeks in my un heated greenhouse.    With the expected cold spell next week do I need to cover them with glass over the pots or should they be ok.
