Rhubarb Growing Tips and Advice

If you love rhubarb pies, consider growing this vegetable, though be careful not to eat the leaves, just the stalks.

  

Planting Rhubarb

Set out crowns in early spring so tops are covered with one inch of soil about 3-4 feet apart. Keep the soil damp and fertilize it yearly. Remove flower stalks. You may need to grow your rhubarb for a few years before you get a full harvest. Snap off all but a few leaf stems at their base when they are about 12 inches long.


Days to Harvest: 1-3 years
Days to Germinate: 36 days
