I planted my rhurbarb in a sunny/shady site in my garden,a few weeks now the leaves are being eaten away and the plant is wilting. What could cause this and is there any cures???

Rhubarb needs full sunshine in a fertile, moisture-retentive soil. This plant has not yet rooted out into the soil and probably went dry. Water it for now and move it to a more suitable spot in winter.
