raspberries and rhubarb

Posted: 20/11/2012 at 10:09

I think now is the best time to move your rhubarb. I dug up mine a couple of weeks ago as it had outgrown its bed. Got the spade in a cracked it into four new plants. Gave a couple away and transplanted two (one for luck)so i am sure to have one left. They are dormant now and its still quite mild, so move it now before it gets too cold and wet, while the ground is still workable. 

Wheres my berries???

Thats wonderful, thanks for your comments. It had some berries on it when i bought it last Autumn. I thought it would be alright. Maybe it was weather no flowers on it at all. Perhaps I could squeeze in a male as they are great for keeping the cats off the corners of the garden. I also have a variegated one got recently, so a male would only help. How close does it have to be????

I have a lovely holly bush in its second year, which is growing well but this year there are still no berries showing. It had a few on it when I planted it last autumn. So what have I done wrong? Or is there still time for them to come through. It is an Ilex Aquifolium 'Alaska'. Any helpful comments gratefully received.
