Rhubarb crowns

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 15:29

If they've been dug up then they need to be planted as soon as possible!

Dig over an area about 1m x 1m for each crown and dig in as much well rotted farm yard manure and/or home made garden compost as possible and a good sprinkling of Fish Blood and Bone and plant them with the growing point just proud of the soil.

Remove any brown leaves and stems but leave the rest.

Give them a couple of buckets of water when you plant them, and keep them well watered with the soil remaining moist but not boggy until the colder weather arrives and the leaves die down. 

Good luck 

HELLO FORKERS!

Chilis Shrivelling

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 14:26

Ommthree, do I understand that it's the chilli fruits themselves that are shrivelling, not the leaves?

Whats happened to my garlic?

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 14:22

When did you plant them?  Could it be that they're ready to harvest and the leaves have died down?

The lawns are not going to get mowed today - it's too hot - and anyway, aren't you supposed to let them grow a bit longer in this sort of heat? 

I've just watered the big pots of morning glories and the fig tree, and picked some beans and courgettes for supper - and I've beaten the blackbirds to some lovely fat raspberries, and I've eaten them

 Now I'm going to sit on the sofa with a long cold drink and with all the doors and windows open and with my feet up - it's too hot out there

My Sweet Rocket is having a second flush of blooms, and late yesterday evening, just as it was getting dark, the perfume outside was wonderful and it wafted through the doors into the house

Can I pick anything up for anyone?
