Rhubarb

Rhubarb-Victoria variety

Yesterday I picked up 2 rhubarb plants-Victoria variety (not the root types but the actual plant) at the nursery and will transplant them today. They were flowering and I read that if they start flowering, one should cut off the flowers so it puts it’s energy into growing leaves again. I hope it will do well with the asparagus (I read somewhere that it likes asparagus close by).  I wish my plants looked like the picture here but alas they do not. The plants look a little sad-root bound, only 2 leaves each and dry but I think I can revive them-they just need room to stretch out…
