We recently received rhubarb roots/plants from relatives in OH (Zone 5), to attempt to grow for fiances father. Is it even possible to grow rhubarb this far South? Has anyone ever done it before? We set up a raised garden spot for it, in partial shade. All we can do is see what happens with it. This whole place is a new purchase for us anyway. We have no idea what works best for regular veggie gardening here, not to mention a specialty crop like Rhubarb. The large garden plot is mostly clay...needing lots of organic matter added to it. Not to mention that plot is full sun most of the day. The planter we set up for the rhubarb, we took soil from the ditch-line in the middle of the property.
Anyway, I thought I would toss the topic in and see if anyone had any experience with it. Thank You in advance. :)
