Can l grow rhubarb in a pot ? If so what is the best way to go about it?

I have had good success growing rhubarb in wicker bed pots (they are like a big self watering pot). I kept 2 plants in regular pots and they barely survived, but my plants in the wicker pots thrived. Google wicker pots if you haven't heard of them and there is plenty of good info on how to make them

Not recommended for pots. I tried over the years in Adelaide and had the most success in the ground.

Rhubarb like lots of manure, a good water supply and cool roots. If you can provide this in a large tub there is no reason why not
