Bear in mind that rhubarb needs plenty of room, and don't forget to water it.
I grow nasturtiums round mine, which are a colourful and child friendly sow and forget annual.
Pity there's no custard plant!
I am always surprised by the fact that rhubarb covers large areas of ground when in full growth, so just mulch at this time of year.
thanks all - nasturtiums it is.
None trailing variety, like tom thumb
