Rhubarb leaves being eaten
Having problems with the rhubarb this year as you can see it is being eaten by something but it is not slugs or snails and underneath them there is nothing there either could you any have suggestion as to what it might be.

It is not snails .... the main damage was done while the leaves were in bud, probably cutworms or possible grub larvae of a beetle species.
It is likely to be a once once ... feed the plant to help it recover and grow.
