Could also be either drought stress or too much water, even next to each other. When you pulled it up, did the roots look intact, healthy and large enough? Did anything show signs of rot or nibbling?

I don't live too far away and have been having more trouble than usual with the cutworm types... I blame the warmer than usual winter but I am not sure for the official reason. Dipel helps on most things but there is some worm type eating on the new roots of a rhubarb I am trying to start. Dipel was ineffective so I drenched the plant in Eight(permethrin). I'm not sure if it will survive.
