Rhubarb Plants


Zone 4a | Anonymous added on November 1, 2018 | Answered

I want to move the rhubarb plants from the back of the house to the side of the house where the soil is more fertile. I didn’t get the rhubarb transplanted this fall as I had hoped. Is it worth the effort to transplant the rhubarb from where it is in the garden, into pots and have those pots wintering in a cold part of the house (breezeway, between the basement and the garage), so I can plant them in the early spring to have a crop in the late spring or early summer? I could still get out there and attempt to transplant. We have had one snowfall and the ground has not frozen too much yet. It is 11/01/17.

Yes, I would transplant them to pots for the winter. It may be a bit too late in your area to transplant. Here is an article for more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/rhubarb/growing-rhubarb-in-pots.htm
