Rhubarb Red Champagne - Rheum rhabarbarum
Availability: Out of stock
Forget buying bare rooted crowns of Rhubarb and waiting years for a clump to establish, get ahead by planting our super strong pot grown plants.
Red Champagne is the classic variety, considered by many to be the ultimate variety for forcing. It will produce long, slender, strawberry-pink stems with a delicious sweet flavour. Left unforced the stems will darken to crimson-red and are ready for harvesting in May.
It really is one of the easiest rhubarbs to grow with a delicious, sweet flavour. It will thrive in a bright sunny spot in fertile soil.
If you want an extra early tender stemmed crop of rhubarb, you can 'force' the stems by excluding light. Simply cover a healthy crown in mid-winter with a specially made pot known as a 'rhubarb forcer' or tall bucket.
Strong pot grown plants supplied in approx 1 litre containers.
