Re: [NAFEX] Rhubarb under grapevinesLon, Joe, anyone else interested:
We had rhubarb in VERY poor soils for well over 20 years and couldn't
kill it............. Very near the dripline of a Water Maple.....
For what this is worth, I don't have a clue..... Just thought I'd jack
my jaw abit....
Warm here, apples in tight cluster, peaches in late pink, I'm in early
Ed, S. Ohio nearer heaven every day..

Light isn't the problem, fertilizer is. Rhubarb likes LOTS of
fertilizer - rotted manure, that sort of thing. Plant it near the grapes
and you will overfertilize them in the process, making them too vigorous and
disrupting fruit set.

Does anybody have experience planting rhubarb under grapevines?
I bought a package of rhubarb seed and now have 14 plants. I am
looking for a place to put them. The grapes are primarily French-
American hybrids trained to Geneva Double Curtain.
It certainly looks like there will be plenty of light until June 15, or
so and I much prefer rhubarb to nettles, thistles and catnip that now
want to grow there.
Any comments or observations will be appreciated.
