Description from Hen & Hammock

You can see why the Victorians loved rhubarb forcers. A rhubarb forcer looks stunning peering out amongst the bright green foliage in the summer and towering over the bare ground in the winter.

Each rhubarb forcer is handmade in the UK from high quality clay and is frost proof.

Rhubarb forcers help produce thin stems that are rich in flavour and low in acidity. This rhubarb forcer can also be used to force seakale.

  • 60cm x 40cm.

Lift the rhubarb forcer onto the rhubarb crown in the winter and leave the lid on. Once it starts to shoot it is safest to remove the lid to stop it being pushed off and getting smashed.

The vigour with which rhubarb grows is dependent on the variety of rhubarb and the richness of the soil. On poor soils rhubarb should be forced only on alternate years and plenty of well rotted manure heaped on the crown in between. For those with rich soil, one neglected crown will produce plenty of rhubarb year after year.
