Rhubarb being eaten

Patrick Duddy asked 6 years ago

I enclose a photo of rhubarb plants which are being eaten. I’m wondering what could be attacking them at this time of year and what remedy you would recommend. The variety is ‘Timperly Early’. I have applied slug pellets to no avail.

This looks like weather damage. Very early growth is soft and a turn in the weather can cause it to struggle.

As the weather improves, the plant will outgrow this damage.
