RHS AGM

Water sprouting broccoli plants 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. Purple sprouting broccoli should be harvested from late February to May, before the flowers open. Pick shoots when they are 15cm (6") long. Regular picking will encourage more shoots to be produced. Don't remove the large leaves as these will protect the next batch of shoots as they develop. Culinary note: Sprouting broccoli is suitable for freezing.
