I have a 2 yr old rhubarb that has produced very well over the last 18 months. yesterday I came home from work and it was limp (never seen it do that before) we have had about 15ml of rain over the last 2 day, and it is quite humid. I gave it water, as the soil looked dry. It seemed to pick up. This morning it is worse all leaves & stems drooping. I dug around the plant and the soil is moist, there seems to be no grubs and there are earth worms in the soil. As this is not it's first hot season, i am at a loss as to what is causing it and what I can do
