I planted cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli andBrussels. Leaves grew, they're now i metre high, but have no fruit

I also have lettuce which have gone hard and very curly and carrots which have the fruit all curled around itself like knots.

Answer: Hi Mildred,
The cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli may have only produced leaves as there were high levels of a nitrogen based fertiliser. Can you apply some Thrive Soluble Fruit and Flower which is high in potassium and this will help promote flowering.
Is the soil very heavy clay based? This may cause the carrots to twist or there maybe nematodes present in the soil.
