Grow Broccoli Monclano F1 this season and say goodbye to crop diseases. This hardy variety has been selected for top flavour, heavy yields and resistance to the scourge of the brassica bed - clubroot and mildew. Monclano F1 produces tight domed heads on clear smooth stems and will produce plenty of side shoots after the central head is harvested. Sow several times through spring for successional harvests from August through to November. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 40cm (16").


1 Packet (20 Seeds) (54966)

Sow broccoli seeds in a well-prepared seed bed from March to June at a depth of 13mm (1/2") and spaced 30cm (12") apart. Transplant to their final positions around 5 weeks later when the seedlings have four or five leaves.

When growing calabrese, choose a sheltered position in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Take care when transplanting Calabrese as it resents root disturbance. Plant calabrese at a distance of 22cm (9") apart, and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.

Water Calabrese regularly and do not allow them to dry out as this may impair their development. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing and bring insect larvae to the surface. The main heads of Calabrese can be harvested from September when they reach 10cm (4") in diameter, before the flowers open. Leave the plant in the ground to allow sideshoots to develop. These can be harvested when they are 10cm (4") long. Regular picking will encourage more shoots to be produced. Culinary note: Calabrese is suitable for freezing.
