Rheum rhabarbarum
Originally grown as a medicinal plant, rhubarb is now used mainly for desserts. Prepare a bed in a sunny well-drained position by digging well-rotted compost or animal manure through the bed as rhubarb is a 'hungry' feeder. Sow seed in spring, 2.5 cm deep directly where it is to grow, or sow in trays, covering lightly with seed raising mix. Space plants at 90 x 90 cm. Water well in dry weather. Apply a mulch of well-rotted manure in autumn and spring. Plants should be divided after 4-5 years.
Rhubarb is a cool climate perennial and the best colour stalks occur with a temperature of about 10C. It will grow as far north as the subtropics but the colour will not be as good. It is best to give it partial shade over the summer in subtropical areas. It is not suitable for tropical areas as it requires a cold period to be productive. Find more information on growing rhubarb here.

Tropical gardeners still keen to try?
In Florida USA gardeners have been successfully growing rhubarb as an annual so if you live in a subtropical or tropical area you might like to give this a go. Sow the seed in late summer, early autumn (January - February) and grow it through the cooler time of year. Feed it very well and keep it well-watered. Harvest the plants entirely in August to October.
Here's a link to a blog on: Growing rhubarb from seed.

Rosella H UT
Hibiscus sabdariffa
syn. Queensland jam plant, Jamaican tea, karkade
Rosella is an annual shrub to 2 metres with attractive yellow hibiscus-like flowers. The plants are vigorous and easy to grow. The calyx (fleshy cover surrounding the seed pod) is used to make jam, cordial and wine. Dried the red calyx can be used for herb tea and is high in vitamin C. To prepare it, strip off the red calyx from the seedpod and dry it in a food drier or a slow oven until crisp. Seeds can be roasted and ground into flour. Young leaves can be steamed and are known as Red Sorrel in the Pacific.
Sow seed in early spring, as it needs a long growing season and takes at least 5 months frost-free to fruit. Bottom heat will be required to get the seed germinated in cooler areas. Suitable for warm temperate, subtropical and tropical areas. See here for jam and cordial recipe and growing information.
