Broken off shoots on rhubarb crown. I was planting a new rhubarb crown in a container yesterday and inadvertently broke off the shoot with a couple of nice healthy looking leaves on it. Will the plant still survive or should I make a trip to the garden centre and get another one? If you advise that this one will be ok, should I cover it to encourage a new shoot or just leave it uncovered?
