Someone gave us some Rubarb bulbs from there garden that they pulled out, do we need to do anything special to transplant these? What area such as to a sunny spot or shade should we be planting these, and out deep into the ground?

Plant the roots with the crown bud 2 inches below the surface of the soil and space the roots 36 to 48 inches apart in rows 3 to 4 feet apart. Full sunshine is fine for them but you can also grow them in morning sun and afternoon shade. Best wishes with your new plants!
