I Have Dug Up My Rhubarb Plant and Want to Store It Over Winter

What do I wrap it in? Do I remove all the stakes before storage? I shall replant it in the SPRING in a new location. Thank you.

I take it you're in a spot where there are little or no freezing temperatures in the winter. You can dig the rhubarb, wrap it in damp unmilled sphagnum, and put it in a pot covered with soil, then freeze it for 6 weeks. Here are a couple of articles with more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/rhubarb/protecting-rhubarb-in-winter.htm
