HAVE: Rhubard seeds

sweetspud(6a)March 29, 2014

I have some rhubarb seeds that I collected last year after our plant went to seed. My husband believes it is a Strawberry variety. I am told they take several years to germinate but if anyone is interested I'm happy to either trade or be sent a SASE.

For what it's worth, I have had very favourable results growing Strawberry rhubarb from seed. In 2010, winter sowed March 18, germination April 10. I gave those plants as a gift. In 2011, winter sowed April 22, germination May 9. Of the 4 seedlings, I planted 2 in my garden from which I have been harvesting the pat 2 years. I am in Zone 5 Canada.

Nelsion, I've sent you an e-mail. I am happy to send you some rhubarb seeds. Was wondering if you would consider doing a swap for some National cucumber pickling and/or lavetera seeds. Let me know if there are other seeds from my list that you would be interested in.

Thanks for your post northerner_on. I was glad to read you had success at starting rhubarb by seed. It encouraged me to give it a try.
