Rhubarb plant - Champagne - 3X crown

  • Catalogue Code 1060-2838
  • Pack Contents: 3x Rhubarb Crowns
  • Great for forcing for sweet pale stems
  • Plants from superior stock
  • Effective windbreak for nearby tender crops

Take advantage of growing rhubarb Champagne, the variety considered to be the best for forcing (shutting out light to encourage pale and sweet stems).

You receive individually-inspected and graded two- year old crowns that have been grown from certified seed so we are confident that our plants come from the best stock. 

We recommend that you give your rhubarb plants about a square metre (square yard) to spread and provide you with healthy stems. Rhubarb need rich soil for healthy stems so treat to organic manure or John Innes No2 compost.

Features

  • Will flower well in full sun

The Rhubard crowns arrived in good condition, but much later than expected. They are planted, but obviously we haven't had a chance to try them yet. These are at a School garden in Stony Stratford, so I hope they perform well.
