despite the allotment being derelict when we took it on, there was one patch of rhubard growing. we added 2 more patches last year but it seemed as though all ot if died off. Last week we bought 2 more sets of roots to plant but over the weekend we found that the older rhubarb had not died after all. There are a large number of shoots coming through.
We will still plant the new ones but again, as witht eh raspberries, we are looking forward to a good crop this year.
