Plant Info

Everyone loves fresh Rhubarb in their garden, and it’s one of the easiest things to grow on a kitchen garden. But, it has one drawback – it throws masses of lovely succulent new stems in Spring for a Month, then that’s pretty much it…… feast and famine. That’s because all Rhubarb plants till now go dormant in Summer.

Now, we are pleased to introduce a very special British bred variety called ’Livingstone’ – which is a day-neutral variety so eliminates this Summer dormancy – this means it produces stems in Spring, but then keeps on going into Summer with bigger crops again in Autumn – giving a bountiful supply for 6 Months or more.

The flavour is good and sweet, and is a very easy to grow and long lasting plant – the crown wills lowly expand over many years producing more and more ‘stocks’ for you to harvest. One for the shopping list!

Many of the plugs can vary in size, please know that this has no say in how they develop. We can assure you that they will thrive and make a beautiful display in your garden!

I will only buy my plants from you whether it is direct or via Ideal World. Your packaging is second to none. You are the best company for plants, best for packaging and best on delivery. I wish you sold a money plant so I could buy everything, your choice of unusual plants is amazing and I am always wanting more when I watch you on Ideal World.

I am sorry that you are unhappy with the wait, however the reason for this was that your credit card failed authorisation and you didn't reply to our letter. Once you called us to resolve, we dispatched within 3 days.

Strawberries are perennials and as such don't look too pretty in early spring - they should pick up fine with proper care... Let us know if not.

Head of Customer Service
-- Service rating : I have to say bad this time as item was knot very good ! Otherwise GardenBargains is usually OK !
Product : Looks very sick may knot service , the worst plant that I've had so far ! Looks like a wast of money !
