No, I would just clear away any tired stalks, rotting leaves and weeds where pests could be lurking. It might pay to put down some slug pellets though; despite being poisonous to people, rhubarb leaves appeal to slugs, snails and also earwigs. Good drainage, generous feeding and adequate water are the secret of good rhubarb, attend to these and the leaves will soon be looking good. Pick stalks before they get too long and limp, gently twisting and pulling them from the base.
