Rhubarb Plants
[Return to Topics]

Wondering if anyone out there can help me with my rhubarb plants. I have about 4 patches of red rhubarb that are extrememly small and just do not seem to get very big...wondering if I should fertilize them, seperate them, or what??? They get equal amounts of sun and shade during the day. I would like to freeze some so I can make pies all year long, so any suggestions on how I can grow "bigger" rhubarb would be appreciated! Thanks...

Don,t know if can fool mother nature but will try

I recently moved to Delaware (from Pennsylvania) and moved some of my rhubarb roots with me.
They start out looking good in the spring, but do not get very big before turning yellow and dying.
I have tried watering them, fertilizing them, and adding manure. They are in a sunny area, and would appreciate any suggestions that anyone can offer.
