Can I force rhubarb in only its second year?
North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I gave away my rhubarb a couple of years ago but Boss Lady has insisted that it is delicious and a neighbour gave me a replacement crown last year which took beautifully and produced quite a lot of stalks, which I left. The thing is I would like to force some but is one year too early? I believe that forcing drains its energy. I have the bucket but can I risk it this year or am I better waiting?
