Question: 262-5201
When can I move rhubarb? Walter, Waterford, CT

Mort's Answer:
You can dig them out, when the leaves start to fall. This should be mid-October in zone 6 in Connecticut. Dig a 2x2 trench as long as necessary to accommodate the rhubarb roots planted a foot apart. Do not put any fertilizer in the hole. Fill the trench with humus rich, well drained soil before inserting the rhubarb roots. Use gloves to apply handfuls of bonemeal along the row on each side of the roots.
