Hi figrat. Rhubarb does not like to be planted too deep . I usualy force a clump of mine, a differant one each year . This sometimes alters the colour of the leaves , Ive had a few pinkish leaves this year I put it down to being forced . What I would do is dig up the clump and replant it in a differant spot or in a large container . My friend always grows hers in home made pots using old tyers. she puts about 4 together uses this and tops with well rotted manure or chicken manure pellets. She swears by this method .
Myself I wouldnt fancy it though she swears blind it does not taste rubbery !
