Q.Planting Rhubarb In Indonesia

Anonymous added on March 19, 2021 | Answered

Hello, I just read your article on planting rhubarb in the Southern Hemisphere, but still have som questions. Can I grow seeds now? Or do I need to wait? The seeds has been in the fridge for a couple of weeks, but I read that it needs 6 week in cold temperature. Together with which other plants will they thrive?

Since most of Indonesia is warm year round, you will grow rhubarb as an annual. It is a cool weather crop that does well with strawberries. Plant seeds in summer to early fall. Since seeds take two years to mature, you may want to grow your rhubarb from crowns or divisions purchased at a garden center.
