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.
