Growing Broccoli

Keep well-watered as seedlings. If left without water they will bolt to seed and be inedible. The plants should grow to develop plenty of large healthy leaves, then the green flower heads follow, which are cut for eating.

Watch for cabbage white butterflies and remove the eggs and caterpillars as soon as possible.

 

 

Once a plant opens its yellow flowers then it is generally past eating as the flavour gets a bit overpowering. Harvest them sooner rather than later.

 

Compatible with: Dwarf beans, beets, celery, cucumber, onions, marigold, nasturtium, rhubarb, aromatic herbs (sage, dill, chamomile, oregano)

Avoid growing with: Climbing (pole) beans, tomato, peppers (chilli, capsicum), eggplant, strawberry, mustard
