Dave, are they all in peat pots? That must cost you an arm and a leg. At least you can re-use the plastic ones?

Gosh you have been busy alright....Im just looking at the picture of your rhubarb.....Im told what I have in my garden is rhubarb but I seem to have big CLUMPS at the base of the plant not in soil.....as in molehills I suppose...just wondered if thats 'normal'

I think theyll come on whenthe weather improves Jackie. We cant all have Dave and madeleine's expertise-and HARD WORK and ENERGY and there was I being smug that my beds were roughly dug!

Dave, you are way ahead as usual. I am convinced that you live in the south of England or France. The growth in your garden bears no relation to what's going on in mine!

Moya, i wish!!! thanks folks, Jacinta, there is a euro deals shop in the Ilac that was selling the peat pots for €1.50 for 25 pots!!! so €6 per 100!! not to bad!! only bought 200!!
