I had some rhubarb that must be over 20 years old I tried to dig it out and have planted a new rhubarb plant but new shoot have started to come through from the news I thought I'd dug it must have left some root behind will they be still good to eat when they're grown

On plant sorry shoots are coming through from the old plant that I tried to dig out but couldn't get all the root out



Yes, of course. Just as edible as before. Not the easiest of plants to dig out.
Ours here must be nearly 65 years old and it still produces good stems.
