How can I stop my Rhubarb going to seed



Cut out the stems that are trying to flower, at this time of year rhubarb wants to flower and seed itself.

Twist the stem from as low down as you can feel the stem
to the crown,
cutting can cause bleeding of the left in stem and bacteria.
I was told long ago "never cut but always twist off the stems".
