Terracotta rhubarb forcer

large - 60×46cm £119.99
This attractive rhubarb forcer has a practical purpose, but its classic good looks mean it will also make a beautiful garden ornament when placed out in your vegetable garden or herbaceous borders.

It has a detachable lid and can be used to 'force' early crops like rhubarb, chicory and asparagus into producing their ready-to-eat harvest ahead of schedule.

Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C to make them as frost resistant as possible. However we would always suggest that, just to be extra safe, in the very cold months that you move empty or full pots into a sheltered spot.

To keep your pot in tip-top condition please read our ‘Assembly and care instructions’ PDF for more detailed advice.

Please note: as they are hand thrown, these pots will vary slightly in height and diameter from batch to batch.

Any white specks in the terracotta are lime granules, which occur naturally in raw Turkish clay. Occasionally when a pot is fired, the clay around them can split out a little, but this does not compromise the strength of the pot in any way. The presence of lime helps to bind the clay and ultimately makes for a stronger pot.
