The Q&A Archives: Lengthening Rhubarb

Question: Our rhubarb gets a large diameter but is only 6-8 inches in length. Is this a soil problem? Beverly Turner Vancouver, WA

Answer: You might try to amend the soil around your rhubarb with composted manure. Rhubarb loves manures and if the roots are kept moist, it's in full sun, your plant should really take off and you'll be eating lots of pies soon!!!
