RHS Award of Garden Merit


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).
