My rhubarb is mostly leaves. Huge leaves and very short stalks??anything I can do to change this?

Nearly all of the rhubarb available is grown from seed which means that growth can be variable. An excess of nitrogen can also cause excessive leaf growth as well so don't fertilise this winter and see if the stalks are bigger next season.
