I love #rhubarb but had to throw the towel in since moving. Too hot/dry here

Lovely! I think my rhubarb is my favourite thing in the garden. The BBC food website has an amazing recipe for rhubarb custard cake, really easy and beautiful.

I’ve tried forcing mine but in hindsight think I should’ve waited as it’s a plant split only within the last 6 months. However waste not want not... how do you know when to pick?

What does forced mean

comment
kimmy01

You have to wait a year before harvesting from rhubarb after you slit it or move it @Emma915Jones and never force the same plant the next year I just waited till they where thick and I only had a small pot on so they couldn't grow any bigger 💚💚

When you try and Forse the plant to grow earlier then normal by covering it after its stoped growing and by early spring you'll be harvesting and they are supposed to taste sweeter @Sussanah

Give them a chance to settle. They may just be having a bit of a tantrum about being moved from their pots. Keep them watered and hopefully they'll perk up.

I have the same problem. Not seen any progress in the ground but we'll see early days maybe plant is adjusting to soil conditions

I pulled some of mine and what was left was looking poor so I've chucked aload of compost over the top recovering it so it has to force it's way again. (Might be worth a try) It's improved mine. @kimmy01 @garymenzies
