Broccoli Plant Blooms


daisyjohn added on March 23, 2014 | Answered

I have about 100 blooms on one broccoli plant. Where do I cut them off? Don't know where to cut. They are about 3 months old and about 16 inches high. What do I do to get a head started? Right now there is buds scattered all over the plant. Where does the head start forming? I don't understand what to do with all the scattered buds. I see no head forming anywhere.

This article will tell you more about preventing bolting (flowering) in your broccoli: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/broccoli/bolting-broccoli-growing-broccoli-in-hot-weather.htm.
At this point, the plant may not be edible. Stalks should be cut off as soon as yellow flowers begin to appear. Here's another helpful article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/broccoli/how-to-grow-broccoli.htm
