Grow Your Own Rhubarb Plants

Our Rhubarb mix pack contains all 3 of our favourite varieties to grow for the longest possible season of fresh rhubarb plants. We start with 'Timperely Early' for a late February crop, move to the large Summer 'Victoria' and go right through to the later harvesting 'Glaskins Perpetual'.

 

You click through to our blog post on how to grow Rhubarb.

 

Here's the details on each variety:

 

Timperley Early
Timperley early is one of the best all round varieties and is as the name suggests and early maturing variety, it can be ready as early as March depending on the Spring temperatures. Timperely early is very easy to establish and has good disease resistance and produces stalks of approx 24 inches. Usually we don’t recommend harvesting your rhubarb in the first year but with this variety you can harvest a small amount in year one. You can be more vigorous with you harvesting in the second year with the plant producing well for at least ten years.

 

Victoria
Victoria is one of the older varieties which was first introduced in 1837 and has been hugely popular ever since. One of the latest varieties to put up stalks in the Spring and will crop from May to August. Stalk length is 36 – 48 inches and are a beautiful lavender pink. Looks fantastic in the garden when blooming with its huge leaves and long striking stalks. Also suitable for forcing indoors in winter when it will crop from late Feb to March. Plant in rich soil in full sun.

 

Glaskins Perpetual
Glaskins Perpetual was first produced in Brighton in the U.K. around 1920. The variety produces large long stemmed stalks bright red in colour which are juicy and hold their flavour well.
Glaskins perpetual is the only rhubarb suitable for late season harvesting as the oxalic acid remains low hence the name ‘perpetual’. Oxalic acid gives raw rhubarb a sharp taste and is also found in perpetual spinach and chard. Cooking will remove most of it but high levels can be unpleasant, it’s particularly high in rhubarb leaves which is why we don’t eat them and are viewed as poisonous.

Is rhubarb an easy enough one to grow? It's the only one I've had failure with for three years in a row! What could I be doing wrong and which breed is best to plant now?
Answered by Andrew

Hi Rozz. Rhubarb is actually very easy to grow once you get the conditions for it right. It doesn't like a wet soil and prefers a sunny corner of the garden. Other than that don't plant it to deep and when putting in the ground make sure to put plenty of well rotted manure or compost in underneath it. If you get the above right the great thing is that you won't have to worry about doing anything else to it for 8/10 years.
