Rhubarb Timperley Early


One of the earliest rhubarb varieties that can be ready to harvest as early as February. Succulent red-based pink stems with a delicious sweet flavour. An excellent variety for outdoor production and forcing in winter. Once established, Timperley Early will produce masses of delicate slender stems that are tender. An easy to grow variety - performs very well outside but will also excel when forced

Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Take care not to cover the crown as this may cause it to rot.
