I have just started my first vegetable garden. My broccoli plants have given me a couple of heads and are now starting to flower. Do I just cut the flowering down and leave in the earth for more crops, or is it now done and needs to be taken outand replaced with new plant?
Broccoli does not regrow after harvesting, and once it begins flowering, the plant is no longer any good as far as being edible. You may as well go ahead and pull the plants as they need to be replanted each year. If you still have suitable weather, you can replant some now for a late crop.
