Cauliflower Plants
Q.

Pigeon attack on Cauliflowers.

Zone LE11 2BG | Anonymous added on June 29, 2019 | Answered

My Romanesco Cauliflowers were starting to grow very nicely but pigeons took the young growth out of the centres of each. Will the plants be able to recover and produce cauliflowers or should I give up and just pull them out? Thanks, Caroline Harding

It depends on the amount of damage to each plant.
If it is just the centers; the plant may continue to form the heads. Damage can be removed after harvest.
