    Amazing Noble Rhubarb

    These seeds are great! Got 14 instead of 10, and I have 2 sprouts on day 5. Because I had extra seeds, I experimented with them and put half of them in a hydroponic system and half in soil. The seeds in the hydroponic system all swelled up and are sprouting/showing signs of sprouting. The ones in soil are less swollen and have not sprouted yet. If you give these seeds a try, I highly recommend sprouting them hydroponically. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase!

  2. Question

    Merrill Jensen

    Good day! Are you growing this plant in Oregon? And if so, do these bloom for you? I’ve been growing this from your seed here in Alaska at the Jensen-Olson Arboretum in Juneau since ’12 and they have yet to bloom. Just curious to see if they need more summer heat that what our maritime climate provides. Thanks!
