Does anybody have rhubarb growing experience around Park Ridge? Am I supposed to cut these flowers off? If so, how far down? Help! Thanks!

That rhubarb is going to seed. You need to prune away those flowers. The plant may not yield very much rhubarb.

There is not enough there to do much with and it looks really green! Better luck next year. You can cut it and cook it with strawberries and sugar and it makes a great ice cream sauce!

I’ve been growing rhubarb for years and I’ve never had flowers like that, even the first couple of years. Maybe you’ll have some luck next year, but that plant looks nothing like mine.

Yes cut flowers off / leave growing energy for stalks
