Rhubarb : How much water does it need?
I have a few other questions too. I know it prefers full sun. The variety is Valentine.
What is a typical diameter? My parents grew it but they had acres and I have only a suburban yard: I donÃ¢ÂÂt recall how big they really get. This plant is in a gallon pot, and is leafing out and growing like crazy since I bought it 2 weeks ago, so it already looks pretty big to me. I could plant it in my main flower garden (raised bed) but I donÃ¢ÂÂt know if it will gobble up territory.
I have been thinking those big lush leaves must mean it needs a lot of water. In the main garden it will get plenty of water, but have some dappled shade for part of the afternoon. I have an alternative location, where it could grow as wide as it wants, and look great with the other things: it gets more sun but it is hard to get the hose over there.
Thanks for your help!
