Rhubarb

Posted: 13/05/2016 at 14:19

Good advice from Ceres.  Unless the roots of the rhubarb are infested with ground elder, bindweed or horsetail I'd accept it happily.  If those weeds are present I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole and I'd go and buy a good plant from a garden centre.  


Plant it with lots of well rotted manure and leave it alone for at least 12 months.

Hmm sounds as if that may be the problem Chicky. 


Are any of your buttons on that drop-down 'live'?  2 for 1 Gardens and the Subscribe button work for me.  But none of the others

Good morning Daniel 


Thanks for all the huge improvements - they're rapidly restoring the enjoyment of using this forum.  


One thing I've noticed is that when accessing the forum on my iPhone I don't have the option of going to Latest Threads - is this intentional or an idiosyncrasy of my phone? 

Espaliered pear tree - when to let it produce fruit?

Posted: 13/05/2016 at 10:21

We have a Concorde pear tree, planted as a maiden whip and it now has three tiers which is as high as we want it to go.  


Last year it had blossom for the first time but I picked off the small resulting fruits.


This year the first and second tiers have blossom.  Dare I let it produce one or two pears, or would it be wiser to remove the fruitlets again this year?


If the latter, when shall I let it produce it's first fruit?
