Rhubarb Victoria 3L Pot by Primrose & 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.

    Caring and Maintenance

    Water around 1 inch a week. Remove any weeds or rocks and place mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter.

    Planting

    Plant in well-draining soil using the planting distance specified in the characteristics above.

    Some shade can be tolerated but more fruit will be produced at a sunny site.

    Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball, place plant in ensuring the crown is level with the ground. Backfill with soil and firm well before watering. Mulch for best results.

    Fruit Benefits

    These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
