It is shockingly dear this year.

I have grown some from seed:

Hello,

I've recently planted some rhubarb crowns (only one of which is showing any
signs of life) and am aware that I shouldn't take any stalks this year (or
next, at any rate) to allow it to get established.

Out of curiosity, how long do you anticipate rhubarb from seed taking before
reaching a stage where you can harvest from it?



Planted seeds a few months ago so probably 2014 and then only very
lightly then.

I think it's well worth letting it establish. Neighbour and I planted
crowns at same time - he harvested a year before I did. Mine is much
bigger than his this year. Probably 3 times the size.
