I used to get a supply of rhubarb from my my dad's garden but he died about ten years ago and mom sold the homestead. Since then I haven't had a piece of rhubarb pie or a side of rhubarb sauce. It's time to plant my own and I found some room in an island I have in my yard. I gave up on a garden years ago because of the critters but I can afford some room among the ornamental grass and a few other deer resistant ornamentals. I have two questions before I begin. First, is rhubarb deer resistant? Secondly, are there cultivars that are more suited to cooking than others. Choices appear to be limited in the area, in fact I couldn't even find rhubarb at the garden centers last year.
