  • Easy to Grow: Yes
Start From Seed: Detailed instructions for direct seeding, or starting seeds indoors and transplanting.
The crowns (roots) you receive are ready to plant immediately. Refrigerate if planting must be delayed. Set crowns 1" deep with bud side up at 3' spacing between crowns into soil mixed with mature compost. Firm the soil around the roots but keep it loose over the top of the bud. Maintain good soil moisture throughout growing season.
Growing Conditions: Growing seasons, soil types, water and fertility requirements.
Rhubarb can live for 10–15 years or more when treated well. Plant crowns in early spring into moist, well drained, fertile soil (pH 6.0–6.8) in full sun or partial shade.
Pest Prevention: Organic solutions to common problems.
Keep weed-free, especially perennial weeds. Handpicking controls the rhubarb curculio beetle.
Harvest: Is it ready yet? When to harvest and how to store your garden produce.
Do not harvest first year after planting. In the second year, only harvest a few stalks per plant. Subsequently harvest for 6–8 weeks from mid-spring to early summer. Harvest only the biggest stalks and don’t remove more than half in one year. Stop harvesting completely by mid-summer. As the leaves are poisonous, remove them before cooking the stalks. Every 4 to 5 years dig up and divide your plants to avoid over-crowded and stunted plants.
