Rhubarb

Rhubarb has been cultivated in British gardens since the late sixteenth century. Its leafstalks can be stewed or used for making preserves. Rhubarb can be grown on almost any type of soil but prefer a rich, rather light soil in an open situation unshaded by trees. Rhubarb is grown from ‘sets’ obtained by dividing the crowns of three year old plants. A crown should have one or more buds and the rootstock should be about the size of one’s fist.  Rhubarb crowns should be spaced 90cm (3ft) apart.

Rhubarb crowns are available from late November until March.

With the exception of the 'Livingstone' rhubarb which is sold in pots, we have now stopped taking orders for rhubarb crowns for this season.  We will shortly be listing those varieties that we will have available to purchase for despatch in autumn 2019, we will also have a small number of pot grown rhubarb which will be ready for despatch early in the summer.
