Hi again, I bought a packet of Rhubarb, LOTS OF SEEDS!!
Any tips on growing rhubarb from seed???
I've never tried it from seeds, although I've heard the seeds don't have a high germination rate. That's probably by design--each plant needs quite a bit of room.
Judging by their cold-hardiness, I think the seed could be sewn directly into the garden with other early seeds, but I think I would start them inside and transplant them to their beds just so I could control number and location. I've transplanted crowns at all different times; fall seems to be best but they've grown even when transplanted in summer.
I've also read that rhubarb doesn't grow true from seed, so you may have some issues there.
