When is the best time to divide rhubarb?
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?
I would appear to have an infestion of shiny green (metalic looking) beetles eating my rhubarb leaves, just spotted them on Saturday and they are going mad for the leaves. I'm afraid they will spread to nearby strawberry beds, how do I get rid of them and what are they?

I have read all the posts relating to growing rhubarb and wonder if it's possible to grow rhubarb in a container as there are very limited sunny spaces in my garden.
I read the piece on how to grow rhubarb - I would like to bring a stool of rhubarb from one house to another. Is now the time to do it. How do you know where to cut it and what does "crown" mean?. I have a small garden to put the new rhubarb in and am wondering if I should put it in a container rather than in the ground so that it does not take over. Why is it that people put ashes on rhubarb?.
I have loads of rhurarb in the garden can it be stewed and put in the freezer.
