Digging Rhubarb

McGregor, IA(Zone 4b)

I want to move some of my many years old plantings of rhubarb. Can I do it now or is it easier some other time of the year. I am not worried about maximum yield from these plants as we have way too many anyways.

I dug all mine up and divided them into pots, put the pots in the ground over the winter (didn;t have my new bed ready yet), In the spring they all sprouted nicely. I planted some in the new bed and gave the rest away. All are growing nicely. I'm not sure if this is the way to do it but it worked great for me.

You could do it now, but it's kinda hard with big mature leaves. It'll be much easier next spring when the red "bubbles" just begin to grow.
