Broccoli Growing Tips and Advice

Broccoli is fairly easy to grow. It's a member of the same family of plants as cabbage, cauliflower and brussel sprouts. Broccoli likes cool weather and tends to "bolt" in hot weather, which means that it flowers, blooms and goes to seed too early. Broccoli has a lot of vitamin A, C and B, along with iron and protein. You can start broccoli inside about 5 to 6 weeks before the last average frost, or outside just after the last average frost. Don't water the tops of the plants, because that encourages flowering.

 

Planting Broccoli

Plant broccoli seeds 1/2 to 1 inch deep, 1 inch apart in rows spaced 2 to 3 feet apart. Thin seedling plants to 15 to 24 inches apart.

Days to harvest: 50 to 100 days
Days to germinate: 3 to 10
