    Candy, what were loose?
    It's not clear. You collected A CROWN but they were loose in the bag.
    Is there more than one?

    OP has only 17 posts and may not yet be able to post pictorial content, despite being around for a longish time. No one knows exactly what the rules are.
    However, as in all gardening, the answer will be "Plant them and see!"

    Rhubarb can sprout from very small pieces so I'd go with Woolsery's advice - plant the bits and see what happens.

    Well I slung one onto a stoney corner ane forgot to dispose of it and it rooted and produced for years!
    Given the right spot thy seem tough as old boots. Just not to sunny. If you put the stones you get from the other beds around it to keep in the moisture that should help too.
    Good luck  :)
