Evening peeps, after a day in the garden I have a few random questions if I may.
Firstly rhubarb: it's in it's first year and I know it's not meant to be picked until it's second year. Do I just leave it to die back or will it need cutting back at some point?
Secondly, clematis: I fear I'll never get the hang of when to prune which ones! When do I prune a Passion flower one (in its first year) and an Early Sensation (again first year) and a Pamela Jackman?
Thirdly, when do I prune a climbing rose (in its first year) called a Madam Alfred Carrier?
Fourthly, when do most people dig up main crop spuds please?
Finally, our lawn is full of weeds this year. I have a tool to get them out but nine times out of ten the root snaps (quite low down in the ground though). Will the weed die or will any last bit of root just mean it'll be back?
thanks for any answers.
