When planting rhubarb make sure you give it lots of growing space. Plant each section deep enough to bury the buds. Rhubarb is a very heavy feeder and requires good organic matter mixed into the soil.
Caring For Rhubarb
Keep it moderately moist and fertilize with a 5-5-5 once during the growing season. Always cut the flowers off and toss them they serve no purpose. Who could ask for an easier plant to care for!
Well your first and second years are going to be disappointing. Harvest only 1-2 stems (If you even have that many). The good news is however the third year and so on you can eat as much rhubarb as you can handle. Never cut more than 50% of the plant. Rhubarbs prime flavor is late spring.
