Plant rhubarb crowns in the patio bags provided using a good quality compost such as John Innes No.3 mixed with plenty of rotted manure. When planting rhubarb crowns, set them so that the top of the crown sits 3cm (1") below soil level. Firm the rhubarb plants in and water well. Place the bags in a sunny position.
During the first year, resist the temptation to harvest the stems, in order to allow the plant to become properly established. Water rhubarb plants regularly, particularly in summer during dry periods. When the leaves die back in autumn, remove the old stalks and apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown. In spring, remove the emerging flower heads as they appear. Rhubarb can be harvested from April to June, when the leaves have fully unfurled. Pull from the base of each stem and twist them away from the crown. Harvest only a few stems at a time. Caution: The leaves of rhubarb plants are toxic if eaten.
