I took a quick tour round my garden to see how everything had coped after the huge amount of rain (57mm) that we had a couple of days ago. Some plants looked a bit bedraggled but in general everything looked quite good for this time of year.
I noticed that the rhubarb was thriving so I thought I would pull a few stalks from my two plants. About two years ago I planted one plant which didn’t really thrive despite my loving care. Then in November of last year I went to an open garden in our local area and was talking to the garden owner who had her rhubarb planted in pots, so I decided that I would try my rhubarb in a pot. The rhubarb really took off so was obviously happy in a pot, so I bought another crown which is now about the same size as the first one. I’m thinking about getting another two plants which should then be enough to give us a good supply of rhubarb.
