Hi,

Is it normal for rhubarb to look like itís dying back at this time of year?

Mine looks like itís rotting away.  I only picked a few stalks.

I hoping itís just preparing for winter by sending the nutritants back into the root.

They'll be fine, rhubarb crowns do look pretty ropey when just the crowns remain, don't worry!
