Q.Why are my Munchkin broccoli not growing heads, they\’re taller than expected and one plant has yellowing leaves?
Can anyone tell me what is wrong with my yellowing broccoli plant?
Though there were some issues with caterpillars as you can see from the leaves and the one plant practically decimated. There doesn’t seem to be any more caterpillars.
One plant got planted by itself and it was not affected by the caterpillars. The others share two beds that are 2′ in diameter. And it looks like there’s a couple of offshoot plants growing too.
They were transplanted late on June 25th due to very poor spring conditions here in Halifax, Nova Scotia, zone 6b. I’m a new gardener. They’re in good potting mix amended with pelleted slow release fertilizer and worm castings. Every 1.5-2 weeks I fertilize with a water soluble fertilizer mixed with molasses.
Two of the plants, the ones that get the most sun are edging 2.5 feet and are only supposed to be 1′. The one plant that was decimated by the caterpillars was forming a head just before they were attacked. None of the others have developed heads.
I'm going to add a couple of other pics in another post. A couple of these turned out to not be the ones I wanted to send.
