Where to Plant

Expect cropping in about July.  Plant about 1.5m apart in rows about 2m apart.  Height and spread about 1.1m x 1.1m. 

Plant in full sun, well-draining soil.  Rhubarb will tolerate almost any type of soil.  Make sure the soil is prepared well and deep as the rhubarb roots will go deep as they do develop a deep root system and best if the soil is fertile, can be partially shaded as well.  Rhubarb will be large so the planting hole should be a bit wider than the crown / plant.  Plant so that the top of the plant is at or just below soil surface and gently firm around and water well.
