You're Living in Rhubarb Country
Growing and Harvesting Rhubarb boils down to simple dos and don’t's.
To get the most out of your patch follow these tips. Planting the rhubarb just right, makes for a bigger and better plant. Dig a hole as deep as the container you purchased it in. If planting from bare root dig the hole to the depth from which the plant came out of. Use a good garden compost or aged, well-rotted manure.
