Q.Setting Rhubarb in July

Zone N39 D2C4 | Kevin.Hourican added on June 26, 2019 | Answered

I know that the time to plant crowns is in the early spring (or in Sept, Oct after it stops growing.)

But, if I buy Pot-grown rhubarb plants, can they be planted now (July in Ireland)

I built a raised bed and would love to get the job finished.

Yes. Now would be fine in your area, since it remains mild, and the plants are already established.

If you were here in the US, I would have said wait, since it can be quite hot here, but you are in the perfect location to plant at just about any time.
