Sounds right. You should leave it for the first year to establish. Should be through by now. Any signs at all?

@christony Hi, the best advise I can give is plant again, in well dug over deep soil with compost or organic matter if you have it. Lots of water for the first year and just remove any dead leaves. In Autumn just remove the leaves as they die and the following year you should have lots of Rhubarb ready to eat. Best Wishes Darren
