Growing Calendar for Rhubarb - Timperley Early
Delivery: 7-10 working days
The variety for the earliest outdoor crops and also suitable for gently forcing. Timperley Early is a popular variety for home-growers on account of its readiness for eating as early as February.
February is a great month for harvesting rhubarb as it's cold outside and hot stewed rhubarb is comfort food, great for preparing in the kitchen.
Grow in rich, moist compost: the roots of your rhubarb crowns will appreciate the nutrients in abundance and promote thick healthy stems, pink, tart and full of flavour.
If harvesting stalks in the first year, pick sparingly so that the remaining stalks give your crowns enough power to generate stronger on-going plants in subsequent years that give you many more stalks.
