Rhubarb as a Potted Plant

Anonymous added on May 11, 2011 | Answered

I live in Georgia where the summers are hot and muggy. I understand that Rhubarb does not do well in this area. I've ordered a couple plants in the hopes that I can put them in pots and bring them indoors if it gets too hot in the summer. How well is this likely to work? Should I just buy generic potting soil, or should I buy some and add some peat moss or something to enhance the drainage? Any other tips for planting Rhubarb in a pot?

Your biggest issue will be getting enough light for the plant when you bring it indoors. You may need to use supplemental light. You can also just try moving it to a shady part of the yard if it gets too warm.

Plain potting soil will work fine, but make sure the pot has drainage holes.
