A query from a friend of mine regarding rhubarb leaves forming then dying back .

He has rhubarb that is forming leaves, the leaves stay a little while , then die back. he thinks he is on over rich soil.

Any suggestions ?

Hmm, sounds more like a lack of water issue. Leaves forming but not enough water to sustain them. Is there any other competition planted next to the rhubarb which could be sapping it.
