I have a rhubarb problem. I had dug them out (or at least I thought I did)
and planted cedars in the same location. The rhubarbs came back and are
now like 2 feet tall.
What's a good and effective way of getting rid of the rhubarbs without
risking the cedars?
I don't know how to get rid of them (I dug out a big clump to give to my
brother, and had some come back in the same area a year later). However, in
time, the cedars will make dense shade, and that will finally do in the
Just keep pulling off the leaves and stalks whenever they appear; they
will snap off at ground level. The roots won't survive long without
leaves providing photosynthesis, and you can just leave them in the
ground to decompose harmlessly into humus.
