Size guide - Pack of 3 Jumbo Plug Plants 

Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plants would benefit from potting into large pots (13cm upwards) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Allow the foliage to die away in the autumn and give a good mulch of well-rotted farmyard manure in early spring to encourage good healthy growth. Divide the rhubarb crowns every 5 years to maintain vigorous growth.
