This sale is for THREE bare/loose rooted rhubarb crowns with no leaves. 

They will not come potted.  You need to pot the plants when you receive them, so make sure you have the correct potting medium and pot or vegetable garden ready. 

Once potted, within days, new leaves will start to grow.

 

Pictures are a guide only and not the exact plants you will receive, as we have many of them available.
The picture of the potted plant is to show what they will grow into - you WILL NOT receive a plant this big. 

 

Rhubarb is high in fibre, is a good source of vitamins K1 and C, is a rich source of antioxidants, and has a low calorie content.

 

AVAILABLE: Australia wide except for Northern Territory, as we do not have permits to export into the Northern Territory. We do have permits for all other states. Please DO NOT order this plant if you are in the N.T., as we will not send it.

 

Rhubarb is NOT a water plant, however I have listed it in this section, as it is an edible plant.
Please read growing information.

 

 

EDIBLE USES:

Rhubarb is actually a vegetable but it's usually prepared like a fruit would be. It's often used in sauces, pies, muffins, and cakes.

Only the rhubarb stalks should be eaten and they must be cooked.

 

I wash my stalks, then cut into about 1cm pieces.  I then put them in a microwave safe container with lid, and cook for around 10 minutes.  There is no need to add extra water when cooking rhubarb in the microwave, as the rhubarb produces enough of its own.  I then give it a stir, and decide if it is soft enough, or needs a few more minutes, depending on how much rhubarb you have in the container.

Alternatively you can cook on the stove, like you would boil potatoes.  I just find this a bit messy.

 

Rhubarb leaves are poisonous and should never be eaten or fed to livestock or poultry.

Please research before cooking and eating, as above is a guide line only.

 

MEDICINAL USES:

In Asia, its dried roots have been utilized in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years.

Always seek advice from a professional before using a plant medicinally.

  • REPOTTING: Rhubarb like to be grown in an open sunny position.  Plant in a deep well drained soil, with plenty of well-rotted animal manure i.e. sheep, chook, cow manure for fertilisation.  Keep moist always.
    Cut off any flower stems that develop, so the plant continues to put energy into the leaves.
    Allow at least 30-40cm between each plant when planting.
     
    HARVEST:  Harvest by pulling the thickest, lowest stacks off.  Gently twist them off, do not cut.  Do not take more than half the stacks off any one plant.
    Only the rhubarb stalks should be eaten and they must be cooked.
