What to do with rhubarb?

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 09:51

I found a rhubarb plant in my allotment. Its anybodys guess how old it is, but the leaves were mottled and yellowing so I have pulled these off and mulched it with rotten manure. Is it best to dig it up and divide it and give it a new home or just leave it be?

suggestions please

Fatsia japonica

Hi Alistair, I have successfully grown Fatsia from heel cuttings, I just pull off the small leaves and stem that grow at the top of the mother plant and put them in a pot of compost. I have grown on some really big plants that way. I keep them potted up and put them in shady areas of the garden. good luck

Hi Mike,

I can feel for you, my hubby had thyroid cancer and has had all the treatment and is clear now, I can only say how fantastic these Hospitals are and what amazing care they give (he was at Gloucester Royal).

I wish you good luck all the best and hope your journey through this phase is as painless as possible and the outcome successfull  xxx
