Always loved gardening. Got my own West London garden in '13 which was just a patch of grass. Really enjoying turning it into a place I love to be.

Rheum x hybridum 'Timperley Early'

Never seem to have had any luck with this. Never seem to get many big stems. Any #tips anyone? #tip #help #rhubarb-tip #rhubarb-advice #rhubarb #rhubarb-timperleyearly #rhubarb

Not a big fan of this one. It's very stringy and tart. 😖😅

I know they’re greedy feeders. @awomanonabike may grow it?

I’ve not grown this variety but Katie is right, they love lots of muck. If grown in a pot, it needs to be a big one, at least 50cm across and high according to RHS. I’d suggest either planting it in the ground or putting it in a much larger pot. Mulch with some well rotted manure (avoiding the crown) and make sure it never dries out. Good luck!

Thanks for the help @brightcolours and @awomanonabike I’ll bung on some manure and see what happens!
