Rhubarb Help!

I stupidly cut several sticks of rhubarb today before I read the advice that these should be pulled not cut. What damage may I have done to the plants?

Re: Rhubarb Help!

Depending where you've cut the stalk (above base level?), if so, then it should be OK. Rhubarb is fairly robust. I've just hacked mine to virtually nothing (leaving only the thin slender stalks) as its been growing wild on a plot which I've just taken over. I've cut the stalks into cubes and frozen them. This was last week, and already there is new growth coming from the plant itself.
