Thompson & Morgan Rhubarb Autumn Thompson.s Terrifically Tasty 2 Budded Pieces

From March onwards, Thompson & Morgan Rhubarb Terrifically Tasty produces thick pink, flavoursome stalks tapering to green, a whole month earlier than other rhubarb plants! You will be enjoying this aptly-named rhubarb variety over a long period, from March right through until mid-summer. This great rhubarb is delicious in pies, crumbles and jams.

Type: Hardy Perennial
Flowering Period: Apr-May
Height: 60cm
Spread: 120cm

Plant rhubarb from autumn to spring in a sunny position in well drained soil. Prepare the soil in advance by digging in plenty of well rotted manure and clearing all weeds. When planting budded pieces from mature rhubarb crowns, set them so that the top of the crown sits 3cm below soil level and allow a spacing of 75cm between plants. Alternatively plant them in large containers of soil based compost mixed with plenty of rotted manure.

During the first year, resist the temptation to harvest the stems, in order to allow the plant to become properly established. In spring, remove the emerging flower heads as they appear. From the second year, stems can be harvested from April to June, when the leaves have fully unfurled. Pull from the base of each stem and twist them away from the crown. Harvest only a few stems at a time. Water rhubarb plants in summer during dry periods to prevent the soil from drying out. When the leaves die back in autumn, remove the old stalks and apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown.

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.

Autumn Planting - Rhubarb Champagne

Rhubarb Champagne is an early variety that is ideal for producing long, deep red-coloured stems. It is a wonderful sweet and delicious variety that is very reliable and easy to grow. What could be better than making your own rhubarb pie or jam? Home grown rhubarb always tastes the best!

Rhubarb crowns are established plants that are at least one year old and will produce a crop in the harvest season after planting - much earlier than rhubarb plants that are grown from seed. They are best planted in the spring or autumn while the soil is warm and moist. Potted rhubarb plants can be planted out at any time of the year so long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or suffering from drought.

Rhubarb Champagne is undemanding but resents disturbance so you will need to choose a permanent spot in the garden where your plants can grow without interruption, from year to year.

During the first year, you will need to resist the temptation to harvest the rhubarb stems so that the plants can become properly established. Stems can be harvested from April to the end of July from the second year onwards, when the leaves have fully unfurled and the stems are approximately 30cm long.
