Description

A sprouting broccoli is a must-have vegetable in any spring productive patch. They are very hardy, and crop over a long period, at one of leanest moments in the year – late winter and early spring.

Care Tips

Protect from Cabbage White butterfly and wood pigeons with fruit nets or micro mesh. Stake and/or build soil up around the stem to support it. Remove any yellowing or fallen leaves to prevent fungal diseases setting in.
