Instructions

Plants mature quickly and grow best in cooler weather. Both early and late crops are possible. For early crops, start seeds indoors in a soil-less mix from late March to early April. Set out the transplants in late April and early May spacing them about 45 cm (18″) apart in rows 90 cm (3′) apart. Fertilizing is essential, keep weeded and evenly watered. Broccoli may become top heavy as the heads form, staking may be required. Harvest the main head when the buds are tight and compact, well before flowering. Flowering will signal an end to head production.
