Rhubarb in a container

from Gordon

My Father who lived to 98, and had a big allotment where he grew almost every vegetable you could think of,
grew his Rhubarb in a buried bucket with holes in the side to let the rain water out.
One good thing about growing it in a bucket it
keeps it contained to stop it spreading.

Sorry about that it's gone down for me too. Never mind I have found a better site.
Hope this one works for you.

When the weather gets a litter bit warmer its very cold up here in Tyne & Wear.I must be getting soft in my old age.
The only trouble is time is running out before the frogs arrive.
Good luck.

Best of Fuchsia

from Gordon

The best type to get are the Hardy.
No need to worry about frosts.
The two I like are.
Alice Hoffman and Army Nurse.
They will bloom from summer to autumn.
Both good for borders or containers.
Happy Gardening
Gordon.

Fuchia

from Gordon

.
I have grown all mine from cuttings and its just a matter of taste.Why not try to grow a standard Fuchia. Take a cutting and root into a pot. As it grows, remove all the side shoots until it reaches the height you require as a single stem. Then remove the tip and it will branch out. When these shoots are 75 mm long then pinch out the stem tips again. This will help make a dense head on the plant.
