My Gardening Fact Sheets

What I have learnt about: Broccoli

Broccoli can be grown as a cool climate crop in all parts of Australia .

Sow seeds in late spring and plant out seedlings in late summer or early Autumn.

Water and mulch well around plants.

Harvesting usually begins 10 to 11 weeks after planting but will take longer (up to 16 weeks) in areas with very cold winters.

To keep plants growing strongly feed every month with Dynamic Lifter.

To stop broccoli going to seed and dying, continue to feed the plant and harvest the stems.
