Growing your own rhubarb

It is probably more accurately described as a vegetable, but rhubarb is more generally thought of as a fruit.

With a rhubarb plant, it is possibly the easiest thing to grow, as it's very hard to go wrong. All you need to provide is a well fertilised area in full sun or partial shade, and off you go. It is usually not a good idea to take stalks for the first year, but once established it should be happy to provide them for up to a decade. Be warned though, it doesn't like disturbance, so make sure you put it in the right place to begin with.

It is very important to remember that it is only rhubarb stalks that are edible, the leaves contain oxalic acid which is poisonous to humans.

  • Harvest your rhubarb plant by pulling the entire stalk away from the crown. Don't strip the plant of all of the leaves at any one time, always leave around four or five on the plant.
  • Remove any flowers from the plant as soon as you see them, as once the plant sets seed it will never recover its vigour.
