This is my first time gardening and have just realized my broccoli has ‘bolted’. I didn’t do my homework and made a mistake of planting it too soon. Is there any way to stop or reverse the bolt process? Now that it has ‘bolted’, can I still get a yield from the plant?
I have black and white caterpillars on my broccoli plants. What is the best way of getting rid of them?
My broccoli and cauliflower plants are well spaced out and have absolutely massive leaves, but they don’t seem to be forming heads. There were plants still in the nursery that had heads! My red cabbage plants are also just leaves, and they aren’t forming into balls. Is there something I can do to help them along? Thank you!
Can broccoli still be eaten after the yellow flowers start to bloom?
Need to know if I can do anything so my broccoli gets heads.
I purchased a Broccoli starter plant and planted it in early June. The broccoli plant began bolting about three weeks ago. I just learned that once the plant begins to flower (bolt), it is too late to to grow actual broccoli. Is it possible to de-flower the plant now and for the plant to start growing broccoli? If I leave the plant as is, will it produce brocolli in the coming fall? What should be done in order to produce broccoli?
Friend gave me broccoli from his garden that is long and stringy and smells like a dead mouse. Is this normal? Can I eat it? Is it a mutated species?
