Our Feedback
Just to let you know my order of 5 plants arrived safely. I am really pleased with them as I have always wanted the more unusual plants instead of trying to grow from seeds but unfortunately I have not been able to source them within my local area. The service you provided was excellent, the packaging was sturdy, the delivery charge was very fair and they were delivered very quickly. I also appreciated that the plants had been watered well in preparation for their journey. Thank-you so much. Kind regards

Rhubarb Plant 'Glaskin's Perpetual'

Awaiting Image

Rheum x hybridum

  • A gorgeously sweet heritage variety of Rhubarb.
  • Can be harvested late into the season as it remains sweet.
  • Heavy cropping and very reliable.

Supplied as a pot grown plant.

Available from APPROXIMATELY Mid March 2020

1 or more £3.95GBP each. Group & quantity discounts
Qty:

Originating from Brighton in the 1920s this truly is a tried and trusted variety. Reliable and heavy cropping this is probably not a variety we would choose to force, as it is so valuable as a late-season variety.

The thick and juicy stems tend to have more of a green tinge than many other varieties of Rhubarb and are also far 'softer'.

But where this variety really comes into its own is with its long cropping season. Due to the naturally low levels of oxalic acid (the compound that causes the bitterness in Rhubarb) in Glaskins Perpetual and the fact that these do not increase as they do in other varieties as the season progresses this Rhubarb variety can be harvested later into the summer and even into the early autumn.

A truly lovely variety in every way.

  • Prefers a rich but well drained soil.
  • Plant any time of year, spacing plants 3 x 3 feet (90 x 90 cm) apart.
  • Keep weed free and water well in dry spells.
  • Avoid harvesting in the first year and only lightly in the second.
  • Harvest by grasping at the base of the stalk and tearing away from the clump.
  • When growth dies down in the autumn generously mulch the crown with well-rotted manure or similar.
