My mother has some old red rhubarb plants that originally came from my grandfather (deceased now for 20 years).
I gathered the plants when she moved from her last house to her current one, and took a couple for myself...had mine in a large barrel planter for a few years.
She lives in a condo...and I was able to plant hers there...until groundkeepers kept trampling all over them and killed them.
I took mine over and planted them...made sure there was a small fencing around it so they wouldn't end up like the first ones...they survived...the soil isn't the greatest, and now mom want's the bed bigger...hmmmm
So told her I would make it bigger, and divide the plants at the same time...now my big question is where are the seeds...it's never gone to 'flower' and have never seen any 'tassles' on them...
Above you show a picture of some stems in jars of water, but nothing said about propagating in this manner...would like to try either way in propagating these wonderful plants that have been passed down and hold memories for some of us in the family. Any solutions here? Thanks.
