      Rhubarb crowns would be better, plant in the autum.

          A crown is where the rhubarb comes from it grows from the base. Look out for it in garden centres in the autum, or ask freinds, relatives, lottie neighbours ( if you have a lottie ) for a piece of a crown. I bought mine for about £1.99p there are quite a few varieties.

          Put rhubarb into the search at top of page scroll down a few and you will see a link to growing rhubarb.

                I've got a healthy rhubarb patch which is just about to become even bigger and I've grown all mine from seed....so I'd recommend you go that way too....I only went for seed cos I was too tight (mean) to pay for crowns when I could buy a whole packet for less than the price on one crown!

                        Rhubarb seeds

                        Hi was suprised it seems to be so easy to grew from seed ,how long before mature enough to harvest and where is the seed available from. Must admit I haven't seen any around.

                          Its just me thats the failure then, I planted a full packet of Unwins Rhubarb seeds in poting compost in a seed tray, none of the seeds germinated. perhaps I might give it one more go soon

                          Would itís criminal past ketchup with it later?

                            I grow Glaskin's Perpetual and they all seem to germinate. I grow them on in the greenhouse over winter then plant them out. I then start picking the next year.
