Rhubarb in pots.

Many thanks for all the replies.  I will leave it where it is over the winter and just give it mulch.  Hopefully it will be alright as I love rhubarb crumble and growing your own is supposed to be better than shop bought.

Hi, Thanks for the replies.  My rhubarb is only in a big plant pot (where do you get at 40 gallon drum from?).  Is there any reason why you are not supposed to eat the sticks in the first year?

I didn't realise you could grow rhubab from seed.  I do hope it works out ok.  Maybe you could try some in a pot and some in the garden.

I have grown for the first time this year rhubarb in a pot (my garden is too small for it to be planted in the soil.  It has grown really well (which I can't believe) I would like to know how I keep it through the winter.  Would putting bubblewrap around the pot help and also do I cut off the stalks and when.  I understand they can't be eaten in the first year.  any help would be appreciated.
