Growing Victoria Rhubarb From Seeds

While it's best to cut bolting rhubarb to prevent flowering, I missed it this year. So my Victoria rhubarb went to seed.

I collected the seed stalks, and I am drying them for storage.

To grow as an annual, seed can be started in August.

To grow as a perennial, save the seeds and start indoors in the spring, 8-10 weeks before the last frost date. This is what I'll be doing with my seeds. It will take a couple of years to produce fruit, but I think it will be fun to give it a try.
