Don't know if you saw the name but it's Timperley early, guess it depends on region you live in too. You can also force it too for earlier rhubarb but i haven't done that @joolzd1970

My kind of growing @rachelbrooks just plant it, don't pick it in it's first year and that's it really! I mulch it end October time with compost to protect crowns over winter and that's it!

My rhubarb have a stem that had like a seed head I've taken it off but very strange ...the rhubarb was relocated this year guess it wasn't happy being moved.

@Juniperberry it sounds like it was a rhubarb flower and you did the right thing cutting it off. It Could have been caused by the stress as they don't like being moved but mine hasn't moved and it threw up a flower last year. Yours is growing so 👍
