Working with reed produces a lot of debris. Four wheelbarrow loads of off cuts and broken reed were taken to the compost area

In the greenhouse it appears that the pitcher plants might be going to produce flowers. Strange growth spurts have appeared in recent days. Some of the plants are now big enough to split and divide and plant up again giving us more plants.
We await to see what nature has to show us. It will certainly be worth waiting for.
Finally the rhubarb crown was moved recently from out of the old tractor tyre where it had been for the past five years or so. It was considered that not enough light reached the plant and it did not really produce a great deal of rhubarb stems. The plant was moved and split and the crowns covered with large plant pots to force and encourage growth. The plants are now doing very well.
