First Year Rhubarb    (Posted Tue, Nov 11 '08 at 07:27 UTC)

I need some help!

I planted rhubarb this year and need to know weather I should cut the stalks off before it freezes.

I've looked at all the growing directions I can find but all they say is "do not cut the first year". Does that include not cutting before frost?

I'm just worried they'll freeze, and the rot will travel to the root and kill it

Thanks in advance.

Nah. Don't bother. If you are really worried, put some hay over it.

Catering to the unique Ferndale perspective.
