Rhubarb Plants


Zone 40004 | Anonymous added on July 19, 2020 | Answered

I have one Rhubarb plant and it finally has stalks. I read that the first year I should not pick.
I believe I need to move it so it can get more sun.
When is a good time to relocate the plant?
If I do not cut any of the stalks, is that all I do and will they just shrivel up and come back next year? Please help

Early spring before new growth appears, or fall will be best for transplanting. Wait until the first year's stalks die and shrivel, then remove them. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/rhubarb/protecting-rhubarb-in-winter.htm
