Rhubarb Crowns - Fulton's Strawberry Surprise

  • Catalogue Code 1060-5902
  • Pack Contents: 3 crowns
  • A Royal Horticultural Society favourite
  • Vigorous plants
  • Well-balanced flavour

Introduce rhubarb Strawberry Surprise to your kitchen garden. These strong, vigorous plants give you striking red stems with a well-balanced flavour when stewed for puddings.

This variety features in the RHS Garden Wisley trials and it was voted it as having the best flavoured stems. Seasoned home-growers will recommend that you grow Fulton's Strawberry Surprise in soil that is rich in organic matter and humus.

After you've planted we recommend that you enjoy watching this rhubarb grow and develop only and then start harvesting in the second year once the plant has developed in earnest.

With large leaves this variety is good for keeping surrounding weeds at bay. Great news for organic gardeners who rely on natural solutions to home-growing gripes.

The 3 crowns don't look good in the dormant season. I have planted them according to the information provided so hopefully will be good in the spring.
