I live in south central Tennessee and want to grow rhubarb. Can I do so as a perennial or do I have to treat it as an annual? And where is the best place to plant the crowns?

Eggplant (also Aubergine) 23 Jun, Nat (Australia - tropical climate)
An eggplant has self seeded in sunny spot, next to my olive tree in Brisbane.. It's now 22/6/2022 so am wondering if I could successfully dig it up and put it elsewhere in the garden. Really healthy stocks (3 of them each about 10ml + wide). Hmmm. Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you
Eggplant (also Aubergine) 23 Jun, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Dig out with a shovel or spade and keep as much soil as possible around the roots. Put into a new hole, pack the soil around it and water well. Plant them about 700mm a part.
Celery 19 Jun, EC Sunshine (Australia - temperate climate)
I've never used seed for growing celery. I buy an organic/non organic bunch, chop off the base place in water and replace the water regularly and place on kitchen bench in sun for a while. Once its starts growing ( starts fast but I let it grow for a while) I then plant it. I've just pulled an amazing bunch planted undercover but northern sun that started just before the recent Sydney rain event in March. I was concerned with the flavour being watery and bland due to the soil being blanched by all the rain so left it in a bit longer when the sun came out. Amazing!!. I am now growing another one from the base of this one I just grew.
Celery 23 Jun, Michael (Australia - temperate climate)
Hello all, I agree with EC sunshine coast and Rokky, I have both seedling plants (garden centre bought) growing nicely in raised garden beds since the beginning of May (temperate climate -Adelaide, day temps range from 14 - 18 currently overnight temps 6- 10 . I started planting Celery bottoms in June from supermarket bought celery bought weekly. Both lots are growing really well. All are planted close together, to promote blanching and structure, some are stringless and some regular stringy type. Now that we are past the Solstice hopefully the longer days will encourage good growth. I treat the growing beds with Bicarb water solution for disease and sprinkle the growing beds with Blood and Bone for plant growth and to keep the local possum away.

Chinese cabbage (also Wong bok, wong nga pak, napa cabbage) 15 Jun, john millington (Australia - temperate climate)
one web site says avoid growing wong bok in cold times of the year. this site says sow in soil temp 10 to 20, the packet i bought says all year on east nsw what is right
Chinese cabbage (also Wong bok, wong nga pak, napa cabbage) 17 Jun, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I'm sub tropical and have grown these into the winter. Plant April to June after the rains/pests. You may be able to have a crop from Sept depending on how cold it is where you live. Or how hot it becomes after winter. Plants slow down growing in the cold months. The thing is have a go and see what works for you.

No planting time for asparagus in your climate zone. Maybe wrong climate.

Watermelon 13 Jun, Fifita Filipe (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Will the seed collected from hybrid watermelon can be ok to grow in our garden???
Watermelon 17 Jun, (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
Hybrid is a cross of different varieties - plant these seeds and the watermelons may be hybrid or like one of the crosses.
Watermelon 15 Jun, Liz (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
Seeds saved from hybrids don't usually grow true.
Rhubarb 13 Jun, Catt Mandu (USA - Zone 8a climate)
I am growing Victoria rhubarb in three-gallon nursery pots in North Georgia. I started the plants (small roots) this spring in a sunny area during cool weather, but moved them into partial to full shade as the heat increased. The soil in the pots is a loamy sand mixed half and half with compost. I water daily, about a quart of water per plant. I top dress each pot with about a teaspoon of granular 13-13-13 fertilizer whenever I notice growth slowing down, roughly once a month.. So far, it has handled temperatures up to 95 F with no problems. My plants are huge, about 3.5 feet across with long thick stems. One thing I have noticed! is the stems are mostly green, not red, this could be due to the shade, or possibly heat. They still taste great in strawberry rhubarb pie, though I'm harvesting very little this first year, hoping for the plants being larger and stronger next year. As a precaution against disease, any leaves and stems that are starting to yellow with age I pull off of the plant and compost them.

Parsnip 10 Jun, dopey duck (New Zealand - temperate climate)
growing parsnips is much like growing brussel sprouts you need them up and running before winter,parsnips need frosts to sweeten them up and brussels need cold to keep the sprouts tight but dont overcook them aldente is perfect and it lessens the sulphur smell,taste.
