Potatoe Shoots Up or Down

There will be a shoot from every viable eye on the tuber. They will all grow up to the light, roots to follow.

Pallets

The pallets were clean and I gave them a heavy sanding, then 2 coats of Ronseal fence life.

A lot of questions there cleverduck.

All of the above except chilli I think will grow outside. Don't know about chilli so don't know.

What is growing in your garden at the moment? This will tell you a lot about your soil. If it is under grass then it will grow most things without much additives.

Thanks Panda. It's amazing what a lash of woodstain can do to a pallet.

 Should keep all sort of gear safe and dry. Next project is a garden table to go with the bench, don't hold your breath.

Rhubarb will grow in shade but you will get green stems if it doesn't get some good sunlight.

Impressive GG. What are you lining it with?

Rhubarb

In November/ december you could plant some there with plenty of FYM if you can get it. By plenty I mean two to three bukets per crown. Combine this with a good mulch of same or good garden compost and it will crop like mad.

Been reading down all these posts and it strikes me that having a limited number of crowns leads to a lot of issues re moving, splitting and picking. If you could have a few more crowns these issues will be less problematic as you can take a crown out of production and not miss it. Rhubarb makes a great backdrop to a flower border so no need to think of it as a veg patch only plant. The one real danger to rhubarb is overpicking.
