Gardener's Questions No. 2 : Runaway rhubarb

Eighteen degrees in the sun at 10am. So far, a rain free day.
Can anybody tell me what, if anything, I should be doing with my rhubarb, which has shot up four colossal stems and is flowering profusely...?

Your rhubarb's gone to seed and all its energy will be going into doing just that. Cut the heads off the seed heads and pull those stems away from its base.

Sounds good - will go over there and do that right away. Thank-you!
