30cm Terracotta Rhubarb Forcer
Keen to enjoy some delicious rhubarb but don’t want to have to wait until late spring or summer? This traditional rhubarb forcer is a great way to encourage quick growth and an early harvest. Rhubarb forcers work by preventing light reaching the crowns of your rhubarb plants, encouraging them to make early growth. This means that you can enjoy a bumper crop of rhubarb even a month or so earlier than if you were to grow them exposed to the elements. Forced rhubarb also tends to be more tender, less bitter and a lighter colour, perfect for puddings and crumbles.

This hand-thrown terracotta rhubarb forcer is ideal for growing your own fruit. The classic terracotta construction is a gorgeous structural addition to any garden as well as being slightly porous, making it less likely to crack in winter and also allowing for better airflow (to make your rhubarb even tastier!)

Features:

  • Encourage early growth - Enjoy the rhubarb harvest earlier than ever by forcing new growth early in the year
  • Grow delicious rhubarb - Rhubarb that has been forced tends to be more tender and less bitter than that which is not, perfect for desserts and puddings
  • Sturdy terracotta - This hand-thrown terracotta forcer is a sturdy addition to any garden thanks to terracotta’s weather resistant properties
Specifications:

  • Height: 40cm (1ft 3¾in)
