thank you for th advice. Re the mint, its already been potted and the remaining roots are out.

The rhubarb is a big plane which I aim to move in the aurumn, I have a nice area by the shed for that, lots of old manure waiting to go into the planting hole.

Not sure what to do with the asparagus lol. Ill have to think on that.

I'll look up the books too.

Thank you again

I started mine off in a shed (I dont have a greenhous,,,yet) I planted them in the garden on Fridy, they are in a sheltered area though. They seem fine. If you do plant them and there is a frost risk, just cover them with some garden fleace

 Can anyone tell me what this is? It looks like an asparagus but I have another 3 in a different part of the garden and one is over 60cm high. Very fast growing too.

Evening all.

its been interesting reading the posts. This is my first posting so I hope not to bore you all. We have recently moved to a nehose use with a nice sized garden. It is laid to lawn which is very mossy. We've scarified & treated it and its looking better. There is much to do, all of the shrubs are overgrown and need cutting right back. 

Im so looking forward to getting this done.
