Stanley says the soil is soft and he seems to think he could have given them too much water.

I suspect they may have been over-watered - they like free-draining soil.

They have long taproots and really don't do well if transplanted at this stage.  Hopefully this dry weather will improve things.

Good luck

You can sow now for a crop late next spring.

When did you sow the others?  If you sowed them this year I wouldn't be expecting a crop until next year - when you say they're 'opening out and not clumping together' what do you mean - they should just look like brassica plants at the moment.

Can we have a picture?

Pesticide residue, advice please

Same here - you hired a professional to deal with the situation - they would have told you if there was anything that needed to be done.
