Rheum rhabarbarum 'Victoria' | Rhubarb Plant
Rhubarb Victoria 3L Pot by James McIntyre & Sons
Long established, popular main-crop variety producing an abundant yield of large thick red stalks. The stalks are not tough or stringy but are juicy and sweet with a tart punch! Excellent for pies & preserves. Very hardy variety and one of the easiest to grow. Can be cropped lightly in the first year then regularly from the second. A good low maintenance crop, well worth the effort! Will do best in a position of full sun.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
