Rhubarb Timperley Early 1 Crown

Delivered as a crown, the upper part of the roots of a perennial, Rhubarb Timperley Early is easy to grow while the huge leaves and bright red leaf stalks make this a spectacular addition to the herbaceous border or even large containers on the patio.
It is one of the best cultivars for early outdoors cropping, with thick, tasty stems and good flavour.
Planting in Autumn or Spring, this Rhubarb likes a rich soil, which includes plenty of compost or manure if it is available.
When planting, plant so that the crown is just level with the surface of the soil. Plant firmly, about 90cm apart, treading the soil around the roots. Water in freely if the soil is dry, and continue to do so until growth starts.
It is advisable not to take stems the first growing season to allow the plant to become established. When harvesting, twist stems away from the crown as they attain sufficient size, but never take too many from one plant, as this will weaken it. To maintain a healthy plant, cease harvesting at the end of July.
1 Crown.

These tulips will grow well in any moist, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position that is sheltered from strong winds. When planting tulip bulbs avoid shallow planting as this may reduce the winter cold period that is essential for tulip bulbs to produce flowers in spring. Plant them at a depth of 15cm and 13cm apart. After flowering, deadhead the faded tulip flowers and allow the foliage to die back completely before removing it in summer.

Quantity: 30 bulbs in a gift bag

These bulbs should be planted preferably before the end of November although most will be fine if planted up to the end of December. They require a sustained "dormant" period of cold temperatures to stimulate root development. If you have to store them for a few days, keep them dry and cool - between 10 and 15 degrees centigrade.
