Growing BroccoliPlanting out and growing Sprouting Broccoli

How to Grow Sprouting Broccoli

  • Broccoli prefers fertile, well-drained, moisture-retentive soil.

  • When the young broccoli plants are 10-15cm (4-6in) high transplant indoor grown plants to their growing positions, leaving 45cm (18in) between them. Before lifting the plants, water them well and water well again after transplanting.

  • Thin directly-sown broccoli to 30cm (1ft) apart.

  • Water every 10-14 days in dry periods.

  • Add high nitrogen fertiliser, such as sulphate of ammonia, at 35g per square metre when plants about 20cm tall, Nettle tea is excellent for this!

  • Birds and Caterpillars can be a problem, so net the plants when the heads are being produced, and butterflies are breeding.
