Q.Broccoli Bolting

hubcity9 added on July 15, 2011 | Answered

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?

They have finished their harvest cycle. Depending on where you live, some people plant for a fall crop but you need a fairly long growing season.
