Rhubarb, like peonies, often outlive the gardener

Published 09/26/2008, Grand Forks Herald

Q: I have a rhubarb patch that I have done nothing with the last eight years. I dug it up, mixed together top soil and mostly cow manure and put the plant back in the same spot. Reading some of the information on rhubarb, I now realize I probably should have split it up, but it has not spread at all during the eight years. It has produced many more stalks this year, but they are dry and somewhat hollow. Is the plant too old? (Bancroft, Ontario)
