Rhubarb Variety Pack of seeds: 10 each of Victoria and Glaskins Perpetual. $3.75
(Perennial- Heirloom- Organic) These two varieties are the most popular heirloom varieties in northern United States and Canada for good reason. They are easy to grow, winter hardy plants with thick, succulent stalks that can be used in any sweet or savory rhubarb dish. Rhubarb is SO much more than pie! These varieties can be harvested starting in the second season. Rhubarb grows best in the northern U.S. and Canada but it can be successfully grown in almost every state. Plant the seeds in small pots inside in late winter to early spring. Transplant into a permanent location after the last frost, in rich, well-draining soil in full sun. Mulch 3-5″ thick with straw or other organic mulch to eliminate weeds and keep moisture in. Rhubarb grows well in containers and is a beautiful plant in flower gardens as well.
Please feel free to check out this site (APictureofAmerica.com) while you are here! I have many interests, and rhubarb is but one of my gardening ventures. After years of occasionally writing posts on my blog, I recently began a college course on starting an online business. One of the topics was choosing a business. How I ended up with a business blog about rhubarb is an interesting story… and if you leave me a comment, I may just tell it! In the meantime, if you are looking for Rhubarb seeds, this is the place to start. Being early spring here in Idaho, my rhubarb is still under snow. It never occurred to me to save seeds last year from my 30 year old plants (and beautiful, succulent, over achieving plants they are!), so I have made a deal with Baker Seeds to not only send you your order of rhubarb seeds, but to include some free heirloom garden seeds along with your packet. Enjoy!
