Now is the time to ‘force’ Rhubarb.
Cover the crowns with straw, get a very large pot and put it upside down over the crown and straw.
This keeps the ground warm and stops the the straw blowing all over the garden.
In a few weeks you will an early crop.
Spring is here!
Flowers out this week: Snowdrops,Aconite,Crocus,Hellebores, Cyclamen.
Shrubs filling the garden with scent are, Winter Honey Suckle and Sarcococca (Christmas Box)
