My Broccoli Is NOT Blooming

Anonymous added on December 19, 2014 | Answered

I have several beautiful broccoli plants. They are about 20 inches (tall/wide) fully leafed. BUT there is NO SIGN of a bloom. I have separated the center leaves, nothing. They have been planted over a month. We are in San Diego, weather has bounced from cool to a few day inn the 80s. Is there a way to "force" a bloom? Last year all was beautiful and fruitful.

Broccoli will not form a head unless the temps stay cool. You can help keep it cool by mulching around the base. But other than that, you have to hope that Mother Nature cooperates and sends cool weather.
