Rhubarb allowed to die down naturally

Posted: 10/04/2012 at 08:54

Hi

I leave  my rhubarb in the ground and have never had any of the problems that concern you.  In fact this year I have some lovely tender rhubarb which we have already started to eat.  I do know that you should not put the leaves in the compost.  However, I shall be digging up the rhubarb this back end, once it has died back in order to split it  and make more new crowns.

Hi and Good Morning

I have a poly tunnel in which I have started off all my fruit amd veg plants.  However, the first leaves after the cotyledons have turned white.  This has happened on the melons, ailsa craig tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflowers.  They all have good root systems. Is this due to scorching, as last month, even with the doors open, the temperature was reaching 35degressC, or have I some sort of pest?

Many thanks in anticipation of some advice
