Harvesting Rhubarb

EARTHY added on August 6, 2015 | Answered

If I make my last harvest of rhubarb at the end of June, what happens to the rhubarb stalks that are left on the plant? Should I pull them off or let them rot away?

I recommend pruning back the rhubarb stalks, once they begin to die back, to the ground in late fall or early winter.
