Growing Broccoli

View the Broccoli page

17 Sep 08 Kim Flood (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I planted 8 Broccoli seedings for weeks ago. They are now 40cm high and have bolted and gone to seed. They got very small florets (but not edible) before going to seed. What have I done wrong. Do I pull them out, cut the tops off or let them go to seed and collect the seeds. Please help.
