Just seen the last two replies, many thanks Italophil and Frank, I've just taken on a half plot allotment so I'll follow your advice and plant them there now (once I've cleared the weeds!) with plenty of organic matter added to the soil, not much shade available though, maybe I'll plant one in the garden in a semi shaded spot and see which grows better.
I've grown four rhubarb plants from seed that I started this spring, I now have four strapping plants in 2 litre containers in the greenhouse. Does anyone know when would be the best time to put these in the ground?
Surely GW could have been shown in an earlier or later time slot, the vast majority of people have the facility to record a programme even if they can't physically be there to watch the transmission. I was incredulous when Monty Don announced a 4 week hiatus, I have no interest in sport and as a novice gardener need all the help I can get from the one gardening programme the BBC deign to show!
