I've had free prescriptions for around 15 years because of my thyroid condition, but I've always gone to the pharmacy and bought any non prescription painkillers I've needed. Even with this danged foot the hospital asked if I needed painkillers and I said I was coping with paracetamol or Solpadeine   They said if I needed more to ring my GP. I suppose some people would have accepted prescription meds just in case

I suppose that roots can merge ..... rather like some branches can fuse when trees are pleached. 

Is it Ok to keep picking rhubarb

Leave them on the plant, they will die down and the nutrition/energy in them will go back into the crown to give it the energy to survive the winter, grow again next spring even larger and ready for you to have your first crop. 


Identity please
