Linseed is different from flaxseed grown for fibres

Posted: 19/10/2013 at 20:19

Most people say that Linseed and flaxseed are the same thing.  There is a farmer who grows Linseed for its oil and says the flaxseed plant is about 3 ft high and grown for long fibres.  The Linseed plant is about 1 ft high and produces lots more flowers and seeds.  Does any one know the latin name for the variety to grow Linseed?

My poor rhubarb has collapsed!

My poor new rhubard plant was planted last year in a huge tub of fresh Miracle Grow.  It grew a few shoots then the leaves turned orange and the whole plant collapsed.  This year it has sent up new growth and is starting to do the same.  Is this some kind of disease?  It has the Award of Garden Merit for performing well but something has gone very wrong!
