Have you been fertilizing? It sounds as if there is too much nitrogen in the soil, which promotes lush, healthy growth but without enough phosphorus to balance it out, you will get little to no heads. You can try to offset the nitrogen by adding some phosphorus rich fertilizer or bone meal to the soil.
