Q.Why Haven’t My Broccoli and Cauliflower Grown Heads?

Lisa Renna added on July 9, 2011 | Answered

My broccoli and cauliflower plants are well spaced out and have absolutely massive leaves, but they don’t seem to be forming heads. There were plants still in the nursery that had heads! My red cabbage plants are also just leaves, and they aren’t forming into balls. Is there something I can do to help them along? Thank you!

Broccoli, cauliflower, & cabbage are cold weather plants. They do best in colder temperatures,& have low tolerance of heat. The outer cabbage leaves can be tied together at the top. It helps the plants form the heads.
