Does anyone know how to rid of an ants nest in the middle of a rhubarb plant? (I scared off all the ants yet they come back every time) 🐜 #help #ants

One of my neighbours have given me a rhubarb plant- but I know absolutely nothing about rhubarb! Can someone please help and explain what I need to do. 😄 #rhubarb #help #advice

Oooh I'm growing a couple this year too! Find somewhere relatively sunny and sheltered from wind - mine lost all its leaves from snapping and I had to relocate it! Much happier now

Also, you don't harvest this year, and just a couple of stems next year. This lets the plant get nice and strong for future years apparently, although I don't know if I can wait that long!

@Mikekally Thanks! 😄 Do I need to use any fertiliser?

I put a small scoop of manure in the hole before dropping the plant in, figured it's going to be there for 10 years or so! But apart from that, just left it go! Definitely didn't like the wind tho!
