Collard Green Plants

Asked May 1, 2017, 10:21 PM EDT

I purchased what was labeled as collard greens and planted the seedlings in my garden. Now they seem to be producing flowerets at the top of the plants. Should I clip them off or just let them grow and see what happens?

The plants sound like they were subject to a type of stress to be flowering. We recommend that you remove the flowers. Monitor the plants. They will either grow or decline.
