We love homegrown rhubarb. It's a refreshing change from those winter roots and arrives just in time to help with the 'hungry gap'. The variety is Timperley Early with its tender, juicy stalks and tart flavour.

Apart from slugs, which can be a problem in the first year of growing, rhubarb has no serious pests and its vigorous growth also helps it compete against perennial weeds. We grow green manure between the rows of rhubarb in July or August, which we incorporate into the soil in February to feed the plants as they need plenty of nitrogen. Loads of manure in late winter also helps!

How to cook rhubarb

Tart in flavour, rhubarb is at its best either stewed or baked. Wash carefully and remove all the leaf, then stew with sugar or bake. Young shoots can be eaten raw, dipped into sugar.
