Living now in a PNW location with an already long established rhubarb plant. I love rhubarb and have been careful not to overpick, overwater and overlove. I don't think the stand - about 5 of 'em - has ever been divided, and I have no idea how long since it was originally planted, but it has always had large healthy dark green leaves/red stalks in March and by June it dwindles to a splayed, bug eaten, oftimes yellowing sad image of its former self. Aside from carefully judicious harvesting and watering, I don't do anything to it save for a small balanced fertilizer application in February, before it really gets into gear. The stand is in a partially sunny spot, in front of a vigorous array of rasberry bushes (which, luckily I also inherited). This year, my second round in this particular garden, the rhubarb did its amazing thing in March, and now looks to be on its last legs: splayed, dying stalks; yellow/brown, small hole infested leaves; and very little new output. Last year, it had some of these problems, but it bounced back for a second successful performance later in the summer. This year, however, it appears very bad indeed. Aside from dividing whatever survives once the time is right, any other suggestions would be appreciated to resuscitate this rhubarb, or is this a doomed romance?
