Relocate rhubarb

Can you leave it until the winter?  It really wouldn't be good to move it at this time of year.

I don't know, but is this a possibility?

I've always used my fingers and if that's not enough a jet of water from the hosepipe will do the job but I always leave a few for the bluetits ... and because we've always ensured they will be able to find food, for the past couple of years I've not had a greenfly problem on the roses because our resident pair of bluetits and their fledglings are busy hopping about in the roses, honeysuckle and clematis hoovering up the greenfly.

You need a Waffle Air cushion like the ones some wheelchair users have - much more comfortable than an ordinary cushion and allows some air circulation.  Think you can get them from Amazon and from those Mobility shops that sell wheelchairs etc.  On the other hand you might be able to borrow one from St John's Ambulance?

((hugs)) for DD ... onwards and upwards!!! 

I'm home - the Green Flag man changed the fuse and it worked.  He started filling in his paperwork and I thought I'd try to start it again ... it wouldn't Grrrrrrrrrrr!!!  He changed it again and it got me home and started again, but I'll have to book it in at a garage for next week ... my regular one recommended one with better diagnostics than they've got, but his recommendation can't fit me in until 2/3rd May!  So I've phoned a third ... they specialise in Renault and Citroen but aren't a dealership with associated £100 per hour charges.  I've got to phone them again tormorrow and they'll fit me in next week.  ..... in the meantime I shall stay at home and play in the garden.  I have a dentist appt tomorrow but will go on the bus.  Now I shall make a curry for supper and do some of that clothes flattening thing on a board
