I grew calabrese from plants bought in my local garden centre. Very dissapointed as the heads were very small and very quickly went to seed. I cut the heads off to try to encourage side shoots but little was happening so I have pulled them up. Soil is quite heavy but well manured and plenty of water. What do you think was the problem?
Broccoli is best grown from seed direct-sown where it is to mature.
