What a wonderful under utilised plant. Rhubarb is an easily grown perennial. Tucked away or planted in impressive large groups, Rhubarb can be planted in amongst other garden perennials making a very attractive addition.
During winter handsome healthy crowns are available for planting out, and will be ready for harvesting in spring. For tasty crunchy stems, provide Rhubarb with plenty of organic compost and a good side dressing of complete organic fertiliser.
Enjoy the bright red stems but never be tempted to eat the leaves as they are poisonous.
Rhubarb is often commonly mistaken to be a fruit but rhubarb is actually a close relative of garden sorrel, and is therefore a member of the vegetable family.
