I moved a lot in my life and have planted this rhubarb when ever I could. Great tasting and wonderful to cook with. It's been about 72 years now and am still planting it!

Will rhubarb grow in a pot and if so what size pot?
Carl H on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have never grown rhubard in a pot, if you did it would have to be a very, very
big pot. It needs alot of room because it grows very big, with big roots. Plus
each year it becomes bigger. The first year you are not suppose to pick it, wait until the next year. I suppose you could try growing it in a pot, let me know if it works.
