Good morning Daisy, KEF and Chicky   You're all up ahead of me  That Panda still has my bodyclock 

Chicky, your garden looks fantastic!   You should be very proud of that!  I remember the pic when you'd just put up those trellis walls!

Potatoes

Reach your hand into the soil and feel around - if you can feel potatoes the size of hen's eggs then they're ready 

I'm really sorry...

Any idea's please

If vandals might be a problem, plant it up with Rubus cockburnianus 'Golden Vale' - that'd teach them 'consequences' 

What to do with rhubarb?

... ish 

Any idea's please

Oh, I'd love to plant a group of multi-stemmed silver birch right on the top, then under-plant with spring bulbs, primroses and cowslips; then some Cyclamen hederifolium for the autumn

That way it could still be mowed a few times a year and kept neat, but it would look fantastic

They don't have cake there .... only toast and dripping  LOL 

green eggs

Posted: 16/06/2014 at 19:50

The green eggs will be slow release fertiliser.

Everything I read about your Purple Fountain Grass tells me that it's a tender perennial usually treated as an annual as it is difficult to over winter.  

£15 is an awful lot to pay for that!  I'd take it back and ask for another (or your money back).  

Did you get it in Norfolk?

What to do with rhubarb?

I 'semi-force' mine under a rhubarb forcer to produce in the very early spring - I was picking early February this year, so I stop picking mine early to give it plenty of rest.

 If you don't put yours under that stress you can carry on picking for another month 

HELLO FORKERS!
