Encourage early, pink, sweet and deliciously tender rhubarb with this Victorian-style earthenware forcer. Designed for practical use, it is also an attractive garden ornament in its own right.
Simply fill the terracotta forcer with straw and position over the emerging rhubarb bud, to protect from frost and provide a cosy environment. You can enjoy rhubarb at Easter, or even as early as Boxing Day, using this technique. But remember not to force the same plant in successive years; let it rest, enabling it to recover its strength for the following year.
Available in two sizes:
- H:45cm, Dia:30cm
- H:55cm, Dia:38cm
Please note: Due to the delicate terracotta and size, these items are available to purchase in store only. Please call 01993 823117 to check availability of stock before you visit. Designs may vary from illustration.
