My garden was re-modelled last year!

The tubs that contained 2 rhubarb crowns had disintegrated and so the crowns were removed and thrown aside.

We have had a very sever winter -10.5 degrees.

I have just looked at the crowns and there are small, reddish shoots growing at the bottom!

Should I plant them? If so, in what, should it be soil or other fibre? What container should I plant them in if I plant them?




If in a container, I would use a potting compost. To get a decent crop, you will need a pretty big pot, of whatever kind. Avoid wooden pots treated with arsenic preservatives--they make the wood greenish.

How do I say thanks?
