Grimm's Planting Guide Rhubarb


Rhubarb crowns have to be planted shallow. At least ¼ to 1/3 of the crown surface should be above the ground level when properly planted. If the bud itself is below the soil line it may rot off and fail to grow.  We have seen fall planted crowns frost heave and roll around on the soild and still grow!  This isn’t an ideal situation, but it makes the point that a shallow crown will often grow and a crown planted below the surface almost certainly won’t.
