How to Grow Rhubarb:
- Plant the rhubarb where it will get at least a half day of sun.
- Place in average soil, but rhubarb does best in compost-rich soil.
- If you start with a small plant, wait two years for harvest.
- When rhubarb sends up a flower stalk, remove it.
- You can split a mature clump of rhubarb into 2 or 3 divisions.
- The leaf attached to the red stems used for cooking can be removed with garden scissors.
- Rhubarb is best used fresh, but you also may freeze it.
