I was being too lazy to go into the house and get my pruning scissors when I wanted to prune off some flower stalks from the rhubarb.
I'll pull it really carefully and it won't be a problem, right?
It's just the one......
And then of course I pulled out a chunk of corm as well.
Of my young and new and much valued rhubarb plant.
I thought I'd killed it but I stuck it in the dirt just in case.
Then a week later it was just looking like a dead stick and making me feel bad every time I walked past so I sighed and pulled it up ready to chuck.
To my surprise and horror there was a tiny little new shoot nodule on the bottom of the stalk and I'd just killed it AGAIN! I stuck it back in the soil again so it could at least die in peace....
Or so I thought until yesterday when I saw this:
What a little fighter!
Now to avoid killing it again!
