ASK A MASTER GARDENER: Tending to thin rhubarb stalks, cracked tomatoes
Q: I moved my rhubarb plant to another location two years ago. The stems are very thin, and I wondered what could be lacking in the soil. I used cow manure for fertilization. I thought it would be good for it.
A: It is a good idea to fertilize rhubarb, both new plantings and old, and well-rotted manure is a good fertilizer.
