Rhubarb, To force your own

January is the time to start. You need to have or to buy an established crown. You can then grow it in a bucket or large pot, filled with ordinary garden soil - water it, then put the whole thing in a black dustbin bag and loosely tie the top, make a few holes for ventilation - then put it in a warm, dark place, under the stairs perhaps. After a few weeks the stems will emerge, and should be picked when they"re more pink than green. Once the crown has stopped producing, it can be planted outside.

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
