Answer: Rhubarb plants can be divided early in the spring when they are still dormant. Dig up your plant and cut the crown into several doughnut-size pieces with a sharp knife, making sure each division has at least one bud. Then replant the divisions in holes amended with well-rotted manure or compost. Plant the divisions so that the buds are 1 to 2 inches below the soil surface. When the shoots emerge, mulch well and keep the plants well watered. Good luck.
