cut broccoli floret too deep

I am growing broccoli bambino and believe I cut off the first floret too deep. First, I waited a bit too long. It said wait until the floret was 5-10 cent piece in width but it was closer to a quarter by the time I got to it. Then it said to cut off with two of the leaves below but there were several leaves below it when I cut it. Will my plant produce anymore broccoli or did I ruin it?

As long as there are still leaves left on the plant, it can send out new shoots. The farther down that you cut the florets, the longer that it will take for new shoots to develop. In late fall, freezing temperatures may arrive before new shoots develop.
