I need answers to how to deal with the large seed stalk that grows in the center of my rubarb roots each year. Should I cut them off or let them grow and why?? Also, should I cut the rubarb stalks or pull them from the base??

I cut my stalks near the base instead of pulling them. Pulling and tearing could dislodge the plant from the soil, and will also leave a larger, ragged tear that would be more prone to infection than a straight, flat cut.
The great thing about gardening is that you always get a chance to start over!
