Hi newboy I arrived x4 rhubarb crowns from dtseeds (GW offer) and one was similar to what you are describing had no roots to talk of but did have signs of growth. I have just planted it ( ur thread spurred me to go do it) after I rang dt brown to ask their advice. They said that the roots will develop when true growth starts and that not all do come with intact roots..... Could be a line but ax it had signs of growth I'm happy!!
I did however complain about the mould/ mildew on the bottom and another 4 ate being sent!!!! I'm going to be over run with rhubarb now!!!
