Average gardeners spending

Posted: 25/04/2016 at 15:16
Compost is my biggest outlay, don't spend on plants though, maybe just the odd bargain from Morrisons.
Someone can spend ??94.00 now and still keep the average up;)

Plant ID - Rhubarb?

Same here scroggin, I bought my seed from Amazon, sown one year, picked the next, that was three years ago and they now have crowns easliy as big as you would buy.
Some people can't afford to buy several fully grown plants. Seeds are very good idea.
I wonder if the OP sowed his seeds in a warm greenhouse, or tried to sow them straight outside and only weeds have sprung up. You cannot mistake a rhubarb seed.

Do you really need to move that rock Hosta, as you know, that's what we do for a living, you won't roll that one over, it's huge, iron bar and rollers is the way to go, if you want some man power at the weekend, I can ask Roland to help. Don't think you should put a strain on that knee though. Silly boy!!!

My garden was covered in it when we move in here, I dug most of it out, then tried glyphosate, it worked...for that year, next year it was back, I have dug and dug, and almost eradicated it now. Just a few fresh pieces that are easliy dug up, hard work but I think worth it in the long run.
Not that I am opposed to glyphosate, it just didn't last.

Gloves!!! I must be dead by now.
I have a few now, from my seeds, white ones, and one that Verdun gave me, and more seeds in. I love them. Never chewed by slugs.

If it were mine at 50 cms tall, I would chop it in half, make a plant 25 cms, it will them branch out from lower down rather than just from the top.
