why does rhubarb go to seed



Because you let it flower - if you see a flower stalk appearing, it should be removed before it opens, and certainly before it sets seed.

The aim of any and all plants is to set seed. As Bamboo says at the first sign of a flower stalk on rhubarb remove it by cutting off.
