I intend to transplant some rhubarb from one garden to another. Is November the best time to lift it? My garden won't be ready to transplant it then so I'm thinking about putting it in a large pot and then tranplanting it in early spring (Feb/March).

Is this feasible? Any advice would be appreciated.

Early spring always best for me as well, with autumn being second best.
So what you propose Yorky is very possible.

My young rhubarb plant took a bit of a battering with the heavy winds recently so I'm thinking of picking whats there and just leaving the root and forcing it over the winter, would this work or would it damage the plant?
