What can I do with the stalks from cabbages and sprouts which have gone to seed? The leaves and the sprouts are fine for the compost but the stalks are too strong to break down.

Cabbage and brussels sprouts stalks will brek down but more slowly as they have more cellulose fibre. You could chop them or crush them with the butt end of a pickaxe or some such, even a spade, or a shredder if available.
