Sowing Months Harvest Months
  • Sow outdoors during late spring, thinly in a prepared seedbed, 1cm (1/2in) deep in rows 45cm (18in) apart.
  • Keep well-watered and cover with a fine netting at all stages to deter birds and cabbage caterpillar attack.
  • Transplant when large enough to handle into well prepared, firm soil allowing 75cm (30in) between plants. Plant firmly.
  • Water plants until established. Earth up and stake as each plant develops.
  • Harvest late winter/early spring by snapping off the flowering shoots before the flowers open. Do not remove the large leaves as these will protect the next batch of shoots.
  • Broccoli contains many healthy antioxidants such as pro-vitamin A and vitamin C, and is also a good source of iron and folic acid.
