Soft Fruit FAQs

  • Where is the best place to plant rhubarb?

    When choosing the location to grow your rhubarb, make sure you pick a spot in full sun that will get partial shade in the afternoon when it is warmer. They grow best in rich, slightly moist soil – if the soil is too wet the roots can rot and cause a multitude of problems.

    Allow the plant plenty of space to grow and spread out and water it during dry periods such as autumn and winter.

  • Does rhubarb come back every year?

    Rhubarb isperennial which means that it will grow back every year. However, when you first plant your rhubarb, although it may be tempting, it is important that you don’t pick it in its first year until it has become established. Allowing it to grow properly will make the plant stronger and produce larger amounts of stems in the following years.
  • Should you cover rhubarb in winter?

    You should protect your rhubarb varieties during the cold and winter, just like you would from the sun's strong rays in the summer. Over winter, it is a good idea that you cover them with a frost-resistant fleece.

    You can also add a layer of protection by applyingmulch to the plant.
  • How can you tell if rhubarb is ripe?

    If your rhubarb stalks aren't completely red, don't worry because this isn't a sign of ripeness. Instead, to tell if it is ready to be harvested, measure the lengths of the stalks – if they're around 7-15 inches long then they are ready.
