I have had the same problem with these bolting. Also, they are not ready to harvest yet, do you think this is because of the cold wet weather earlier in the year? Is it safe to leave them in the ground until they start to fall over? Rita

HI Rita The best thing to do is cut of the stems now and lift as soon as you can as they wont grow much more in the ground and wont store well either. Its the year we have this year that its hot and cold that made them bolt Thanks Diarmuid

Hi Anthony Yes i understand your frustration on this. I had the same issue with about 30% of mine going to seed as well. To be honest as much as the growers say they are less likely to bolt. This Spring we had the coldest April and May at night for almost 100 years so i suspect that had a lot to do with it. But yes very frustrating. The joys of growing i am afraid. Niall Quickcrop
