Rhubarb Plants


Anonymous added on September 7, 2015 | Answered

I am trying to find out if you are to completely harvest rhubarb before winter. My plant was split from another 2 years ago. It is large and very happy. I have been told different things about this, so please help. Thank you.

If you plan on harvesting, then yes, do so before winter--even fall. It is not usually a good idea to harvest this late in the season as it may cause the plant to go into a late season growth spurt, which opens it up to damage. It will use up energy it will need for the winter and may not be able to last through the winter due to this.
