Quintessentially British and named in honour of Queen Victoria in 1837, Rhubarb Victoria is a tried and trusted hardy variety which has proved popular with gardeners old and new over many decades. It is easy to grow and once in place, given the right conditions, will give plentiful supplies of tasty stalks for many years.

These Jumbo plug 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.
Arrived slightly withered in the heat wave but perked up beautifully as soon as I planted them. Growing strong and healthy.
Plants arrived as always in perfect condition growing on well
I am used to receiving nothing but the best quality from Brookside over the last few years. The Fuchsias & Begonias I have had and the service too have always been top notch,the staff on the order line in particular are always polite and efficient.However I was a little disappointed with my order of 36 jumbo plugs of Victoria Rhubarb received recently. The plugs were a little frail for the price,£2:33 each for what are virtual seedlings, is a touch steep when mature crowns can be obtained for £4/ £5. I doubt all the plugs will mature successfully and if they do,not for 2/3 years. I am not complaining about the service Brookside provided and was prepared in this instance to overlook the ""lower quality""sent out,indeed I am in the process of preparing my summer plant order at the moment and will be placing this soon. Thanks for asking my opinion and look forward to receiving your usual quality plants in future,Chris Jepson,in Blackpool.
I am very happy with my jumbo plug plants of rhubarb . I live in France , delivery was quick and the plants packaged very well , one was a little limp but I have potted them up and I'm sure it will soon recover... Excellent service from Brookside Nursery..
