i have had this silverbeet for over 12 months and it has been really healthy but it has started to flower and i don't know what to do. should i cut it right back or just cut the flowering part out? thanks in advance for your help.

As the weather warms up this causes the plant to go to seed. Plant a new crop and if you have the space leave your old crop in and continue picking until your new crop is ready. Steve
