Rhubarb

Rhubarb are originally from Siberia, they are extremely hardy and frost resistant. Rhubarb are easy to grow and will bear good crops for 20 years or more. From an established crown it is possible to expect a yield of 2.5kg a year. Do not eat the leaves, they are poisonous.

Rhubarb needs to be grown in a sunny position, in soil which is reasonably free draining and rich in organic matter.

Rhubarb crowns are available pre-packed from late-October to March. They are available in containers all year round.
