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

Subject: [NAFEX] Rhubarb under grapevines
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.
