Rhubarb 'Champagne' (3 crowns)

Rhubarb 'Champagne' (3 crowns)

Rhubarb 'Champagne' (3 crowns) Code: RHU003

£14.50 14.5000 In Stock New

Rheum hybridum 'Champagne' 

This classic variety is considered by many to be the ultimate variety for forcing, producing long, slender, strawberry-pink stems with a delicious sweet flavour.  Left unforced the stems will darken to crimson-red and are ready for harvesting in May.


Available for delivery: late November - mid April.


 

Rhubarb is delicious in desserts and as it is so easy to grow and takes up very little room it deserves a place in every garden. The plants will tolerate full sun or partial shade, but it is important to make sure they are planted in a well-drained soil. It is equally suited to container growing. Our rhubarb crowns are supplied as large hand selected crowns and are available from late November to mid April. Livingstone is supplied in 9cm pots and is available all year.

 

For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
