Broccoli green calabrese seed by Mr. Fothergill’s. Tasty and good for you. Healthy late summer-autumn vegetable. Delicious steamed, stir-fried or raw.
Useful Information: Vitamin C; Dietary fibre
Sow and Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly, March-May, in a seed bed, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 45 cm (18-inch) apart, when plants are about 10 cm (4-inch) tall. Allow 45 cm (18-inch) between rows. Plant firmly and water well. Or sow indoors, March-May, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5 cm (2-inch) apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, May-June, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest: September-November.
Hints and Tips: Once the main head of broccoli is cut, the plants will produce more side shoots for picking. 1g of broccoli provides the daily requirement of vitamin C.
