Brussel Sprouts

Anonymous added on April 27, 2014 | Answered

My brussel sprouts are growing well but have large tall stocks with hundreds of tiny yellow flowers. What am I doing wrong? Am I to cut off the stocks of flowers? They are about 3 feet tall.

It sounds as if the plant has bolted and is probably not very tasty anymore. Crops like this need to be harvested before they bolt. To keep plants that are prone to bolting, they need to keep their soil cool. Mulch helps.
