Firstly.......Many thanks for the response to my enquiry Re. Seed compost.
Another question..........Is it possible to obtain Rhubarb seeds,or do you have to get cuttings and grow them on. I would prefer start with seeds if poss.

On plant Rheum rhabarbarum (Rhubarb)



Growing rhuabarb from seed would be a long haul; it is more usual to buy a crown (or beg one from someone already growing a healthy clump)
