When Is The Best Time To Transplant Rhubarb

Rhubarb transplants should be repeated every two weeks, as the plant has a very short growing season. Plants can be sown in January and February for spring planting, between March and April to ensure summer production, or again in September for autumn harvests. Each time you sow rhubarb you will get another crop of leaves that are more nutritious than the previous one – so it is worthwhile repeating your first few crops often!

How much space do I need to grow rhubarb?

Rhubarb grows best if it has at least 5 hours of direct sunlight per day – especially during its active growth phase from May through July. More light means higher yields too! Ideally, rhubarb should have at least 10 hours of sunshine per day but this may not always be possible here in Britain where UK gardens tend to lack sufficient sun exposure. However don’t give up on growing rhubarb just because you’re unable to provide sufficient sunlight – there are many other alternatives that can substitute well enough!
