Flowering Months Harvest Months
During the first year, resist the temptation to harvest the stems, in order to allow the plant to become properly established. Water rhubarb plants in summer during dry periods. When the leaves die back in autumn, remove the old stalks and apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown. In spring, remove the emerging flower heads as they appear. Timperley Early can be harvested from March to May, when the leaves have fully unfurled. Pull from the base of each stem and twist them away from the crown. Harvest only a few stems at a time. Eat only the stems - the leaves of rhubarb are poisonous!
Caution: Leaves are toxic if eaten. Plant rhubarb crowns in winter in a sunny position in well drained soil. Prepare the soil by digging in plenty of well rotted manure. When planting rhubarb crowns, set them so that the top of the crown sits 3cm (1") below soil level. Allow a spacing of 75cm (30") between plants. Alternatively plant in large containers of soil based compost such as John Innes No 3. mixed with plenty of rotted manure.
