    Default Another one about greengages

    I bought a greengage and planted it when it arrived (bare root) in November. Although the plum and the pear that I bought at the same time are showing good signs of life, the buds on the greengage aren't doing anything. Am I right to be concerned? I also bought a rhubarb at the same time and that has shown nothing yet either, which bothers me, as I was looking forward to some crumble.

    Should my greengage and rhubarb have woken up yet?

    If you gently scrape the bark from stem with your fingernail then you can often get a feel for how well it is doing.
