Description

Enjoy fresh rhubarb crumble in summer and autumn with ‘Sanvitos® Summer'. Unlike other varieties which become soft and stringy from mid-summer, you can pick the tender strawberry-red stalks from May for several weeks and then enjoy even heavier yields again from September – providing a much longer harvest interval. Rhubarb ‘Sanvitos® Summer' is also suited to year-round forcing, resulting in early crops of mouth-watering bright pink stalks that are especially tender and sweet. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 120cm (48").

How to Grow
Plant rhubarb from autumn to spring in a sunny position in well drained soil. Prepare the soil in advance by digging in plenty of well rotted manure and clearing all weeds. When planting rhubarb crowns, set them so that the top of the crown sits 3cm (1") below soil level and allow a spacing of 75cm (30") between plants. Alternatively plant them in large containers of soil based compost such as John Innes No 3. mixed with plenty of rotted manure.
More Info
During the first year, resist the temptation to harvest the stems, in order to allow the plant to become properly established. In spring, remove the emerging flower heads as they appear. From the second year, stems 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. Water rhubarb plants in summer during dry periods to prevent the soil from drying out. When the leaves die back in autumn, remove the old stalks and apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown. Caution: The leaves of rhubarb plants are toxic if eaten.
