Flowers on rhubarb plants

Orla Stanley asked 13 years ago

For a second year flowers have appeared on rhubarb plants, have cut them out but wonder what conditions are causing flowers to appear in the first place. I understand the plant wastes energy flowering at the expense of the fruit.

Good growing weather last summer built up the energy resources of the plants and laid down flower buds for this year.
