Cutting Back Broccoli Leaves
After a broccoli plant is full grown, will it harm the plant from producing well if you were to cut back 2 or 3 inches off of the ends of leaves, so maybe you could grow more plants in smaller area? Will cutting leaves hurt plant too much?

It likely will not hurt the plant, but be aware that anytime you trim the leaves of a plant, you are exposing it to potential entry points for disease.
