How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your rhubarb crowns carefully packaged in paper bags.

 Can’t plant straight away?

If you can’t plant your rhubarb crowns straight away, store them in a cool place and keep the roots moist. We recommend you plant your crowns as soon as possible, within a couple of days of receiving them.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in containers: We recommend you grow your rhubarb crowns on in a pot for around a month before planting out. Plant in a large pot of compost with the growing point level with the top of the compost. Water regularly but avoid waterlogging.

Planting in the ground: Plant the crown so that the top is just visible above the surface of the soil, with the roots spread out. Space crowns around 75-90cm apart. Water well after planting.

Aftercare: Water well during dry periods and feed in summer with a general purpose fertiliser. Don’t harvest any stems in the first year, and only a few stems in the second year. After the second year, harvest as needed, stopping in July to allow the plant to build up reserves for the following year.
