The most popular variety currently grown in the UK. Excellent for winter forcing. Crops from spring to late summer and has a tangy flavour.

Prefers a moisture retentive but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Remove any flower stems so the plant does not waste any of its energy. DO NOT cut stems in the first year after planting so the plant can establish itself. CARE: Leaves of rhubarb are toxic and should never be eaten.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
