bolting may be due to drought, high temperatures, sowing too thickly or transplanting. Pak Choi can be transplanted but better to sow it directly where it is to crop. Thinning in dry soil conditions will hasten bolting. The bolting will give it a bitter taste

thanks for that michael.i sowed them in plugs and then set them in the bed but they probably suffered drought and are in a very warm sunny spot
