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.
