I am new to this forum and fairly new to vegetable gardening. I currently have 8 broccoli plants in my raised bed. I planted these in June. I followed the advice of planting multiple seeds to ensure germination understanding that one would dominate the other anyway. However, the second, less dominate plants have been present for a long time and I feel that they are sharing nutrients that could only be going to the dominant plant. My question is should I pull up or cut the less dominate plant on all of them? Is this safe to do? I feel like the head should have been growing by now and it's not.
