    Hi Charles / all.
    We planted about 16 rhubarb crowns earlier this year. We have just let them grow without harvesting to allow them to build up their strength.
    We are just clearing up the dead and dying leaves.
    Can these go in the compost? My wife tells me no but I am not sure.



    Wow, that’s a lot of rhubarb! I’ve been happily composting my rhubarb leaves for about 15 years without probs..



    Exactly, rhubarb leaves are fine to compost and I add them, even though people say not to, because others have said not to as far as I can tell!



    That is exactly the case. My wife, Ruth, told me not to because her mum was told by her gardening friend that it wasn’t a good idea.

    I shall combine two heaps that have shrunk but not ready to turn and start another heap tomorrow.
