Receiving your 9cm pot plant

Choose a sunny, open site and incorporate a generous layer of bulky compost into the soil. Dig a hole so that the plant sits with the buds just below the surface of the soil.

One rhubarb plant should be enough for an area of about 1 square metre (square yard), so if you are planting more than one, be sure to plant at metre spacing in all directions.

Leave the crop to grow and develop in the first year without harvesting.

Feed plants in summer with a general fertiliser- one high in nitrogen is beneficial, as the harvestable crop is the growing stems rather than flowers and fruits, which should be removed as soon as you see them.

Water well during dry spells. Adding a mulch in its first February or March will conserve moisture in the soil.

Harvest stems in the plants second April. You can pull rhubarb stems up with your hand, close to the base of the plant and twisting slightly as you pull. Leave at least 3-5 stems per harvest. And cease harvesting by July.
