anyone any ideas how to stop flower of spring cabbage going to seed started the seed in in late july early argust then give them a feed in late feb had the the same problem for a couble of years now thanks



No way to stop them once they start, that I know of. For next year, you might want to double check that the variety you are planting is suitable for a spring harvest. Another thing that may help is to put more slow-acting nitrogen in the soil before planting, so that the rosettes get larger before frost, and more nitrogen is released in the early spring, when the heads should be expanding. Another thing that may help is to mulch the soil surface before frost, to even out soil temperatures in spring.
