My tree collard was grown from a cutting I got less than a year ago. Its already shooting up buds and about to flower. Should I cut off the budding stalk or let it flower? Would the collard not be as good if I let it flower?

In my experience, they generally die if you allow them to flower.

I think I heard the tree collard will not produce viable seed, so I would cut the stalk to prevent it spending energy to that end. I have not had this particular issue, so it very well might die even if you cut the stalk. But there is only one way to find out.
