Thank you all, I think at the moment I will net the greens, I have many bees, and they are laying their eggs in the bee houses I have around the allotment.

I have always used the rhubarb sticks cut into small cubes for planting my brassicas, and have used the leaves steeped in water as a weed killer, but yesterday was told that the leaves can be used as a wash  to deter the cabbage white. As they are toxic has anybody else either used it or heard about it. thank you

Hi Liriodendron. Thank you for your information I will google the the site. the person who gave me them was giving up her allotment that is the reason they have dried out. what shall I do with them till Spring . I am making a new bed for them , but should I just put them in a spare bit of ground till then?
