rhubarb disease

ita hannon asked 12 years ago

When does rhubarb stop growing? I have had a very short season of it this year and now it seems to have some disease like the stems have a guey spit on it and when i cut it the rhubarb seems brown in places inside.

Rhubarb has been affected this year by dry weather, which stopped growth, and wind damage which can cause the exudate that you describe,

Water well in a dry spell and mulch with garden compost.
