Grow your own rhubarb and within 2 years you'll be harvesting the stems by the armful! Early varieties can be forced (grown in darkness under a large pot or rhubarb forcer) or left to grow 'naturally'. Try to resist the urge to pick all the stems in the first year, so that the plants can become properly established.
Rhubarb 'Livingstone' (Spring Planting)
Rheum x hybridum
Increase your yields and harvest two Rhubarb crops per year! This unique variety has been British-bred, using traditional methods to eliminate its natural summer dormancy - so you can harvest one crop in spring and another one in autumn. Rhubarb ‘Livingstone’ produces succulent pink stems which are virtually stringless, with an excellent flavour. Once established, this disease resistance variety will produce superb yields. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 120cm (48").
These young plants will quickly mature, resulting in crowns big enough to harvest from 2 years after planting.
