What are the pros? easy to grow
What are the cons? don't like high water table
I started growing rhubarb from seed when the rhubarb root/crowns I brought didn't last more than a year or 2 since the water table is too high. It is easy to start outside in a pot after it gets warm and break up and replant in the soil--just have to water and not let it dry up. It comes back in the spring and you don't have to worry about losing older plants. Very nice in jams.
