When Should I Plant Rhubarb?

April is the best time to plant rhubarb in Utah.  You can buy rhubarb crowns at your local independent plant nursery.  Or, if you are lucky, you have a rhubarb-growing neighbor who will let you dig up a crown or two.  Rhubarb transplants easily in the spring before the plant has grown big.  The cool wet weather of April and May will help it get established.  Wait 2 years before harvesting from newly planted rhubarb plants.  They need to get strong and well established.
Here is another blog post about rhubarb.  Rhubarb is a perennial; it will come back year after year.
