Hi all the leaves on my rhubarb are turning red ,can anyone tell me what this is and what to do please?
Could the new stems coming up be cutting off sap etc of the old leaves. It happens to a number of other plants Tomato side shoots coming out of the stems for example. Just an idea.
Reminder to self to plant the rhubarb plant I bought three weeks ago .
Have they been allowed to dry out at some point?
Have been watering at night as we haven't had any rain for ages
tee hee , no worries scroggin.
I am lucky to live up in Cheshire. We have had a bit more rain than those further south. We are under cloud today but not a great likelihood of useful rain.
At least the sun and wind will not be drying out the soil so much as over the last few days. Our soil is very sandy and can start blowing about. I will have to go and buy more "soil improver" compost.
