RHEUM rhabarbarum RHUBARB Victoria crowns
Long established, popular main-crop variety producing an abundant yield of large thick red stalks. The stalks are not tough or stringy but are juicy and sweet with a tart punch! Excellent for pies & preserves. Very hardy variety and one of the easiest to grow. Can be cropped lightly in the first year then regularly from the second. A good low maintenance crop, well worth the effort! Will do best in a position of full sun. Eventual height and spread: 1m (3ft). Self fertile.
3 litre stock will be supplied pot grown where possible.
Bare root stock is available for dispatch between late October & late March. Orders can be placed in advance at any time, just bear in mind that payment will be taken in full at time of ordering. Please be aware bare root Rhubarb crowns are sold in outers of 2.
Plant crowns 90-100cm apart. Plant in sun or partial shade, on moist but well drained, humus-rich soils. Soak the root-ball before planting. Water well until established.
