@columbiariver 😂😂they can be huge 😳 mine is in a raised bed so not as moist as the plant likes so it is keeping it restricted in size 👌😘

I've tried to grow rhubarb and was unsuccessful. I remember when I was a kid picking it but I have no luck growing it what tips do you have so I can give it another go ?
