Q.Can I Save Bolting Broccoli Before It Produces Broccoli?

Zone Washington | deloresstephens added on June 23, 2020 | Answered

I’m in Eastern Washington and the broccoli Was doing great and then last week the center stall shot up and flowered. There were only a few little buds on them with no broccoli heads forming. The plant was about 2 feet tall with a flower at the top. I cut them back due to not knowing what else to do. This is my first time growing broccoli so I need help.
