Q.

stalks removed from rhubarb plant

Zone Bakersfield, CA | Kimberly Burke added on December 25, 2015 | Answered

Rhubarb plant had all the stalks removed. Will it survive? My gardener removed all the stalks from my rhubarb plant about a week ago. We had just planted it in the spring this year. It was doing really good prior to that with very large leaves and stalks. Will the plant survive and is there anything I can do to help it?

Generally I like to see some of the leaves left on the plant to help feed the plant.
Rhubarb is generally quite hardy and your plant likely will regrow in spring.
