RHUBARB TIMPERLEY EARLY
RHUBARB TIMPERLEY EARLY
‘Timperley Early’ Rhubarb is one of the earliest varieties that can be ready as early as February. It is suitable for forcing if you wish to produce an even earlier crop, and will provide you with succulent, red-based pink stems with a scrumptious flavour.
Plant your Rhubard crowns in winter, in a sunny location with well drained and fertile soil. Prepare the soil by digging in plenty of well rotted manure as this will help with the growing process. When planting the crowns, set them so that the sop of the crown sits 3cm below soil level.
Allow a spacing of 75cm between plants. Alternatively they can be grown in large containers of soil based compost such as John Innes No.3 mixed with plenty of rotted manure.

Tomato Cossack Thompson & Morgan
Similar to ‘Moneymaker’ the ‘Cossack’ tomato produces high yields of delicious, medium sized fruits weighing at least 75g. With excellent resistance to TMV, Fusarium and Cladosporium they are the perfect addition to a greenhouse or sunny patio. They have an extended period of cropping when grown cold compared to other varieties, and are early to ripen, making them a brilliant garden variety.
When sowing, choose a location with full sun. Sow from February to March, on the surface of good quality, free draining and moist seed compost, and then cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.
Place in a propagator at a temperature of between 18 – 20C until germination which can take up to 14 days. When your seedlings are large enough transplant into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow at a minimum temperature of 15C. Your tomatoes will be ready to harvest from June until September.
