Growing Rhubarb

View the Rhubarb page

I have been growing one rhubarb crown in a pot for 12 months. The stalks are very thin but tasty. Just bought a much bigger pot & some compost to replant it into. Should I put the pot up on bricks like my lemon tree or just on the ground?

In a pot it requires more care and attention. Good soil and a regular fertilizing to produce good stalks. I don't think it really matters if it is raised or not.
