My broccoli was coming along beautifully. Heads were forming but not quite big enough to harvest. Then, over the past 2 days, they have bolted forming long yellow flowers. I have now removed the spindley flower stems in hope that I may get side shoots of broccoli forming.
Does anyone know what I did wrong. They were planted in a new raised bed which was filled with home made compost and bought compost. The plants and leaves themseles are massive (although this might be normal) and I think it may be down to too mch nitrogen in the bed.
Anyone got any advice or explaination?
