PLANTING: Rhubarb roots will grow in acid, alkaline, sandy, clay or any type of black soil. If potting, use any type of potting soil. To plant root cutting, make a hole as deep as the division. Place division in hole with bud facing up. Bulb should be 1″ above soil line. Do not cover crown of division or it will die. Plants should be spaced 24″ apart. Best time to plant rhubarb is in the spring. Rhubarb is a cool weather loving plantand likes it’s feet dry. If planted in a low place, plant in a raised bed.
