Rhubarb Plants

Rhubarb can be grown from seed but it takes several years to bear adequately and does not always produce true to type. The easiest and preferred method is to grow rhubarb from root cuttings called crowns.

Different varieties mature at different times of the year, and it is possible to have rhubarb cropping from April to August. Varieties can also offer degrees of stalk redness and sweetness.

There's a guide to growing rhubarb on the site here: Grow Your Own Rhubarb
