If all else fails try the pipe rat poison feeder its very safe for the other wild life and they go off elsewhere to die not in your garden, the  details how are on a previous chat I dont know how to find old chats, good luck.

Morning all ,bit of a funny one ere, I grew from seed  (  so easy ) about 10 Victoria  Rhubarbs ,I planted them on, fed on Comfrey and raw seaweed tea, and they were just smashing ,good stalks and healthy big leaves, the question is this ,all the stalks we left to ripen and die off , nothing touched only  the slugs had a nibble,now they are still in there positions and almost gone,so do i just leave them for the winter as they are or lift them for the green house for there first year, I understand they love the cold so ??,also if they grow again next year is this classed as there first proper year as a crown and not pulled or can we pull and eat as if its there second year,? Many thanks,  O and looking at the price,s of crowns last year  I found the seed growing a complete doddle and so so rewarding
