Customer Comments on Rhubarb - Victoria
In warm climates there are 2 ways to get a yield. One is to dig up and FREEZE the plant for 4 weeks (in the deep freeze), then replant. 2. Grow it in shade (including in long grass) to get it to stetch up. | Peter Sutherland - Brisbane, QLD 03-Oct-2007

Can't kill it! My globe artichokes appeared to suffocate it, then when they thinned out I discovered plump, juicy stalks. Tend to be green, but lovely dipped in a little sugar! | Jon Albiez - Toowoomba, QLD 11-Nov-2010
