I too find difficulty in staying awake with MD's voice! Used to be worse when he first presented GW, last night was coz feeling rough.... Family are used to me taping GW, going to sleep, playing it back & going to sleep again.......
Bjay-re the rhubarb, if crown not too big then a very large pot with good compost would suffice for now. Keep in sheltered place though, say next to a wall or wrap the pot in case a harsh frost. If I remember correctly you're in Worcs, so frost could be a problem soon, depends on your particular area. Any pot grown plant is vunerable to frost damage of it's roots, in the ground always better.You can plant crowns out until Nov I understand, so time enough, weather permitting to get its proper home sorted? Even a 2' square would do for now.
NSlater is a keen gardener, so it could well be his plot/plants we see. Or TV trickery?
Have been out & fed the birds- groundfeeders keep getting their food snaffled by squirrels & pigeons. Whilst was doing that a litle coal tit was sooo close, totally not bothered by me, lovely. J.
