Rhubarb [Rheum] 2011.
Looking over some of the lower tubs,the Rhubarb is coming on well with them.Still quite young compared to the upper tubs.The Rhubarbs will be given one of its favourites throughout the summer [some liquid manure] every two weeks.
Rhubarb does not have much pest or disease problems,though at times can get a touch of Leaf Spot [Ramularia rhei] and Crown rot [Erwinia rhapontici].The Rhubarb is known as a member of the night shade family.
