Just wondering if it is possible to grow rhubarb in a large container, we have downsized and are short on space? TIA

Hi, Rhubarb does great in containers. I've had one for years as an ornamental.

You could do it. It would take a lot of looking after. A suggestion, buy a 200lt drum, cut it in half, put some holes in the bottom for drainage. Plastic 200lt drum on Facebook - market place.

Just wondering if it is possible to grow rhubarb in a large container, we have downsized and are short on space? TIA
