Brussels sprouts

Zone Hillsboro, Oregon 97124 | Anonymous added on May 23, 2019 | Answered

I planted my Brussels sprouts in April they are doing great, trimmed bottom leaves and they are starting to have little Brussels, a couple of them look like they have started to go to seed and flower, am I suppose to cut it out of the center (like broccoli when it flowers) or just let it go and if so will they continue to grow tall and make Brussel sprouts normally. Thank you Carole Tannock

    Bolting is generally caused by low temps and once this occurs the plant will not produce.
