im growing brocolli which is about 2feet tall now,and was doing ok til a few days ago.its now started to get little yellow flowers amongst the head.does this mean its going to seed and ive lost it?or is there something i can do.thanks



Hi there rob,

I'm no expert with brocolli, but it does sond like it's gone over.

I grow purple sprouting, I find it easy to grow and crop the little florrets as and when they look ready.

You could cut it, it may produce more smaller heads.

Happy gardening.
