Product Information

Why not try growing your very own delicious Rhubarb at home?

The fabulous pair of Rhubarb plants will give you a delicious crop twice a year of 'Sanvitos Early' and 'Sanvitos Summer'. Rhubarb is very easy and incredibly rewarding to grow and perfect for gardeners of all abilities.

  • 'Sanvitos Early' is an excellent early rhubarb variety and you can expect to pick fresh, juicy sticks from April each year. The dazzling, bright red stems not only look spectacular but have a lovely, balanced flavour that is much less acidic than many varieties, making it ideal for making scrumptious crumbles and jams.
  • 'Sanvitos Summer' is a versatile rhubarb that will produce delicious, juicy sticks in spring, and as a day-neutral variety, there is no summer dormancy. The vivid bright red stems are stringless and wonderfully tender with a delicious, sweet flavour and well-balanced acidity, making it ideal for making tangy pies and preserves.

We suggest picking sparingly in the first year to allow your plants to establish, and you'll be rewarded with armfuls of delicious rhubarb to harvest each year for many, many years to come! Ideal in the vegetable garden or grow your rhubarb in a large container.

Supplied as 2 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant out.

Care Information

Planting Advice For Your Rhubarb:

  • Before planting, dig over the ground and remove all perennial weeds.
  • Add compost or well-rotted manure into the soil. Don't add any additional fertiliser.
  • Plant crowns in early spring in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun as soon as the ground is workable when the roots are still dormant and before growth begins or plants are just beginning to leaf out.
  • Potted plants can be planted out at any time.
  • Dig large holes around twice the size of the root spread. Space rhubarb plants about 3 feet apart and plant the roots 2-5cm (1-2in) below the surface of the soil.
  • After planting, mulch generously with a heavy layer of straw to retain moisture and discourage weeds.

Aftercare Advice For Your Rhubarb:

  • Water your plant well.
  • Remove flower stalks as soon as they appear.
  • When the top growth dies back in autumn, remove the dead leaves to expose the crown to frost - this will help break dormancy and ensure a good crop of stalks the following year.
  • Divide rhubarb roots every 3 to 4 years when plants are dormant in early spring or autumn.

Harvesting Advice For Your Rhubarb:

  • For best results allow to establish for a season and pick sparingly in year two. Expect heavy crops thereafter.
  • To pick, hold the stalk at the base and pull it out of the ground, aiming to avoid snapping it off.
