Question:

What would be a good planting site for rhubarb?

Answer:

Rhubarb performs best in well-drained, fertile soils that are high in organic matter.  Heavy, clay soils can often be improved by incorporating organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, into the upper 12 to 15 inches of soil.  The planting site should also receive at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun each day.  Avoid shady sites near trees and shrubs.
