Rhubarb 'Champagne' (Spring Planting)

Rheum x hybridum

This early variety is ideal for forcing to produce long, slender, pink-tinged stalks.

Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 120cm (48").

These young plants will quickly mature, resulting in crowns big enough to harvest from 2 years after planting.

  • Collection comprises:
  • Onion 'Red Arrow' – An early red onion with rosy red skins and pink tinged flesh, which makes a colourful contribution to many culinary dishes.
  • Onion 'Vulcan' – An earlier-ripening onion hybrid. The golden skinned, deep, rounded bulbs have firm flesh and store well, for up to 12 weeks after harvesting.
  • Onion 'Spitfire' – An early brown onion, producing good yields of medium-sized, globed-shaped bulbs, with crisp white flesh.
