Keeping Rhubarb from Growing Back

I have just transplanted some rhubarb and I want to plant cucumbers in the spot where it was. I just want to make sure the rhubarb won't grow back. What sound I do?

Rhubarb is a perennial which means it will keep coming back every year. To get rid of it you must dig up the root system. It is a woody type root and tends to break apart easily so be sure to get it all! Rhubarb sends out runners underground and can spread.
