Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant the crowns in a pot and grow them - with a bit of TLC - for about a month until the roots have filled the pot well.
Care Tips Don't harvest anything in the first season. Just mulch your plants - not too close to the crown - and let them grow and establish themselves well. Simply allow the sticks of rhubarb to die back in the first autumn. Spread organic compost around the crown in its dormant winter phase. Grow in an area, which has not grown rhubarb in the last six years.
