My rhubarb has very large leaves and very short stems. How do I get it growing the other way round?

It could be the variety. I grow rhubarb in Southland, where we get winter snows. The variety I grow is Cardinal Crunch. It has short fat stems, rich red in colour and big leaves.

You don't. Rhubarb can vary greatly from the parent plant if grown from seed. Best to get a division from a plant with the characteristics you want.
