This is my first post thank you for letting me join your forum.
I live in surrey i have not got a very big garden mainly flowers
and lawn, but i am sorting out part of the garden to use to plant
vegetable so i am sure i will be asking plenty of question look foward
getting to know you all.
my sister has rhubarb in her garden, She has just given me a load
of seeds. Is this the best way to start some plants for my garden.
Also at the moment is it ok to grow them in a very large pot
The quickest way to propagate rhubarb is to divide a plant. Any chunk
that has a stalk or two and some roots will probably grow. Seeds will
work if they are viable but it will take longer. AFAIK rhubarb is
true breeding so the seeds should give a plant much like the parent.
Sure, depending on your definition of 'very large'. Fill the pot with
fairly rich mix that includes some manure or compost, rhubarb is a
moderately heavy feeder. It will only do well for a year or two after
that divide it and plant it out or replace the soil. Place the pot in
full sun and remember to water it regularly particularly when it is
hot and dry.
