Rhubarb Plants


Anonymous added on March 8, 2018 | Answered

we have had a very early spring this year so the rhubarb is growing very fast. But, winter is coming back and we are expecting below freezing temps with snow and ice on the horizon. How do I or do I need to protect this new spring growth?

Yes, the tender emerging shoots are the most sensitive to cold and frost.
An old pillow case, milk jug or bucket can be used to cover the plants. Make sure you remove the covering as soon as the temps rise in the morning.
