    Rhubarb

    Easily grown in fertile, medium moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best grown from root divisions (a section of root with one or more buds or eyes). Plant root sets 3-4' apart in early spring.

    Do not harvest stalks until second year, and only harvest up to 50-60% so the plant retains its nutrition for the next year. Divide root crowns every 3 to 4 years. Needs even moisture. Promptly remove all flower/seed stalks as soon as they appear.

    This cold hardy plant needs a period of winter dormancy.

    Garden Uses

    Grow on the periphery of the vegetable garden where roots can remain undisturbed. Rhubarb can also be planted in a corner of the perennial border for its ornamental foliage value (large green leaves contrasting with deep red stalks) with no intent to harvest the stalks.
