I am not sure if this is an unusual Rhubarb Forcer or an unusual use for a plant pot destined for the garbage after Mr Piglet burnt a hole in the bottom with red-hot ashes!
Researching on the Gardeners’ World website I’ve just realised I should have plugged any holes to exclude light.
Now there’s me thinking you at least needed limited light for plants to grow! OK Piglet back to the drawing board – there’s always next year! But then I’ve just read I should avoid forcing a single crown of rhubarb for two years in a row.
So come on folks get creative what else can I use this unusual pot for – any ideas?
I was going to transplant my much-loved Rhubarb to my raised vegetable garden (Piglet’s Plot) until I discovered the soil there is contaminated with white mold. There is certainly never a dull moment trying to grow fruit and veg!
