I have just planted a Rhubarb plant and the label has told me that I cannot eat any rhubarb off this year's growth, does anyone know the reason for this. Many thank's
It need to get established and taking the stems off slows that process.
Lots of info re growing rhubarb on this thread
Hope it helps.
Many thanks for you help will check that link.
Leave it alone for a year and you could be harvesting it by the barrowful.
Anybody got 5 gallons of custard.
That looks a wonderful harvest!
Hope you've got room in your freezer! Mine aren't established enough yet to take much. And only Tesco seem to be stocking it near me.
12 kilo in freezer and 4 given to boss to keep her sweet!
How many plants have you got?
Had two rows. Transplanted and divided one bed, 39 crowns. probably 20 in the other, will divide next november.
Hi, what is eating my rhubarb leaves?
