Growing Rhubarb

View the Rhubarb page

10 Mar 18 John Ryan (Australia - temperate climate)
I have a small rhubarb patch, 5-6 plants, in soil about 20cm deep, then clay. Plants have remained small (Northern Wollongong) and I wish to revitalise by digging plot deeper, and manuring appropriately. Can you advise which manures best to use? Advice appreciated. John Ryan.

Manures are much the same, just some have a bit more N in them - they range about 2-3% to 6-7% I think. Look up the internet. Just buy a bag from a nursery and mix it in well.
