How to grow broccoli:

Brassica oleracea botrytis.


Buy Organic Broccoli Seeds from The Green Chronicle (Pay in $US, £, Euro).

Sow broccoli in March or early April (under glass if necessary) in order to harvest it from September to December.

When the seedlings are about 3 inches high plant them out into a prepared bed. 

The small plants should be set about 6 inches apart. Plant them out into their permanent beds in early June.

Sow as above in early May for cropping in January to April. These plants will have to stay in the soil throughout the winter.

Their heads may need to be protected with straw or by folding the leaves over the heads.
