Where to Plant
Plant full sun, well-draining soil and not waterlogged. Make sure the ground is free of weeds before planting. Timperley Early rhubarb should be planted November to December. Plant the crown with its growing point at or just below soil surface (no more than 4 inches below). If the soil is a bit ‘wet’ planting the just raised out of the soil may help prevent the crown from rotting. Space crowns about 1m apart.
