Proving that not all rhubarbs are best stewed and smothered in crumble and custard, Rheum palmatum ‘Red Herald’ put on a tremendous show at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens last week.

They need a continuously moist spot and lots of room to develop their full potential, but when they do they’re magnificent creatures.
