Rhubarb stools

Hilda Roche asked 11 years ago

We have a small garden, and we have a variety of Rhubarb called “Pink Champagne”, the garden is over run with weeds and we are trying to sort the garden. Some of the rhubarb is dead and some is alive. We were going to dig it all up and re-sow it. We were just wondering if it was too late to dig it up now and re-sow it or Dig it up and store it until September and re-sow it then. What would your recommendation be? If we were to store it what would be the best way to do that?

Rhubarb needs a sunny spot in well drained soil that does not dry out in summer.

Clear away all weeds and mulch the plant with grass mowings or any organic material. If you need to re-plant, do so in late autumn.
