Will rhubarb grow in a tub?


By Joy

North East Lincolnshire, United Kingdom Gb

will rhubarb grow happily in a tub? If so which variety is best and does any one know of where i can buy just one crown? looked at the usual catalogue sites and they tend to come in packs of three which is no good for my small back yard. Should have dug up a cutting from my lottie before we moved...doh!

On plant Rheum rhabarbarum (Rhubarb)



Maybe you have a friend who could give you a division? From my reading you can easily grow rhubarb in a container (the bigger the better but a 12" minimum apparently!) place in full sun and fertilise regularly.
Marshalls are selling double crown packs (2different varieties in each)
Hope this helps and good luck
