Thinking of growing rhubarb? You’ll be surprised to know that you just need to plant it once, treat it well and it will continue to produce gorgeous edible stalks for you to use (more apple and rhubarb crumble for your tum!). You’ll need a little bit of patience though, as harvesting takes place from the second year. Rhubarb is typically grown from crowns in winter or early spring, but it can also be grown from seed.
