    Default rhubarb

    anybody know about rhubarb? I have a patch of it that is about 15 or
    20 years old. someone gave me a start and I've never done anything
    with it. it's looking a bit straggly and I just got the idea I might
    need to divide it? anybody have any knowledge about that? thanks,
    Kitty

    Rec.gardens.edible would be the appropriate place to ask about dividing
    it.

    Or try The Rhubarb Compendium, http://rhubarbinfo.com/

    Divide it every 4-5 years or less.... Rhubarb does not like crowding and
    will diminish in both yield and hardiness the more it is compacted. Divide
    mature crowns into 4-10 sections (depending on age and condition) and
    replant a minimum of 24" apart.
