Rhubarb, Isle of Ely

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 17:29

In the Isle of Ely there's a place called Grunty Fen - it holds (or used to hold) an annual rhubarb festival.  Whether that has anything to do with your rhubarb I have no idea, but it may be worth exploring further.

Votes please, and a quick questions...

As for the pines - have you got a north-facing corner over by the boundary fence I can see in the reflection?

French Dwarf Beans

It's not a problem - some varieties of french beans have purplish or reddish blotches on the pods - absolutely nothing to worry about

For me it has to be the holly - but you'll need to clip it and start making it a formal shape, then it will look fabulous.   

My reasoning is:

I know that holly can be clipped and kept to a size that will suit that pot.

If we don't know what type the pine is, it might not be happy being kept closely confined.  

That's my thought anyway
