Growing Rhubarb

View the Rhubarb page

11 Jun 18 I Cumming (South Africa - Humid sub-tropical climate)
I have moved to Waterfall in K ZN I have had very little success Previously I lived in ,Ekurhuleni (Edenvale) for many years where we had great success for over 40 years. The plants are attacked a by a voracious bug which looks like a bee. What can I do to eradicate this bug that feeds on the leaves which causes the plant to die and the tubers to rot. is the climate too hot or too wet. My son lives close to Ascot in England and has success with his Rhubarb George
