Are they sold for planting or for cooking? If they are sold for cooking they may not shoot if they have been sprayed with a shoot retardant.

You buy it as a plant. It gets pruned down to the ground in Spring and then you get a display of stems of new growth in the Winter. Choose a variety that will give you a good colour, like Edd's example above. They look especially striking in the sun.

Even if it is just scruffy woodland, you will have to apply for planning permission to turn it into a garden, I would imagine. Just like people who extend their gardens into agricultural land in all innocence and are then surprised when they have to return it to agricultural land when the Council catches up with them.

Also Rigger boots are good, with pull-up straps and steel toe-caps and fleecy insides.

All I can say is if we'd used them as a lever we'd have paid more for our oil, not less!
