|The yummy delight of a tart, fresh rhubarb pie!|
Many of my garden customers want to keep a spot in their flower gardens for 'grandmother's rhubarb'. It seems to be one of those plants that have a strong sentimental value, - the other is peonies. Maybe because those plants live so long.
To divide rhubarb, dig the root mass and divide the crown between buds or eyes, into pieces about 2" long, with roots attached. You can divide in spring or fall, but it’s easier in spring, when the plant is coming out of dormancy and growing new roots.
