Q.My Bok Choy Plants Are Going To Seed Too Soon.

Zone Sterling, Alaska 99672 | shalamarstables added on June 20, 2021 | Answered

I keep pinching them off but they grow right back. These are suppose to be the large size Bok Choy. When I ordered the seeds I was told they were the large Bok Choy, not the small. The Bok choy plants are about 6 inches tall and already going to seed. I was assured that these seeds when I ordered them were the large Bok Choy. Need help

The short answer is that the plant is stressed. What is causing it will be the problem to sort out. Most usually, this is temperature. Anything above 70 degrees will cause bolting. They do not tolerate heat, or even warm for that matter.

Sometimes, they do this because of too much sun. You may try growing these during the shorter part of the year.
