I grow a lot of Rhubarb, is it OK to put the leaves on the compost heap?



See above!

And also did you know that if you tear them into a few pieces you can put them round vulnerablents to deter slugs!!

Hmm...wonder if that works with sorrel, Steragram--rhubarb doesn't grow well in the desert.

No idea Tug - try it and see! Do you get slugs in the desert?

Surprisingly, yes! Especially if the neighbors overwater. Slugs not a problem for me, now, but I will look for a willing "Guinea pig" (rub hands & cackle!). Will update when I can.
