Broccoli Plants

Huge Plants, No Yield

Anonymous added on July 18, 2011 | Answered

I purchased an Earth Box earlier this spring. I grew 3 broccoli plants and 3 eggplant plants. All 6 plants are huge, but have nothing to show for it. The eggplants have flowers, but they shrivel up and fall off. I am going to try and hand pollinate them. I am not sure what is wrong with the broccoli. The temps have been in the mid 80s constantly. Do you know why the plants aren't producing but are beautiful in size?

    Typically, this is caused by too much nitrogen and too little phosphorus. Bone meal is a great way to add phosphorus, or you can try a "bloom booster" fertilizer.
