I'm going to plant some rhubarb this year - first time (although I started some in my old garden and then moved so I have no idea how it has turned out!). Anyway, just wondering if you all have recommendations learned from your own rhubarb patches?
Favorite varieties? After a bit of research I'm thinking Valentine (OTooles had it last weekend). But I'm open to other suggestions if you've had great success with something else on the front range.
Also, the plant markers at OTooles said sun or part shade - I have a sunny spot picked out in my raised veggie bed, although I am a little loath to give up so much prime space to it. But has anyone had luck with it in part shade? (4-6 hours). Or, third option, would it do better or worse in a sunny summer bed that stayed shaded and frozen in the winter? (Part of my veggie bed gets decent sun during the summer but due to the angle of the sun gets shaded and stays frozen most of the winter).
Any advice would be appreciated!
