Broccoli, Purple Sprouting (Brasssica oleracea) - 100 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 3-12
Purple Sprouting Broccoli Seeds grow best in cool weather, so starting the seeds indoors 5-6 weeks before the last expected frost will ensure a faster crop. Shortly after the last frost, prepare the ground with organic matter or fertilizer; when the seedlings reach about 6" tall, plant them 1-2' apart in rows 2-3' apart. For direct sowing seeds, plant these purple sprouting broccoli seeds 1/2" deep and 12" apart in full sun and rich soil, after the last expected spring frost; thin them to 3' apart. Keep the soil moist. For companion planting benefits, plant broccoli with herbs, potatoes, or onions; avoid planting it with tomatoes or pole beans. Keep the young plants watered and remove weeds carefully. Mulch helps discourage weeds and regulate soil temperature, and several applications of fertilizer or compost will also be needed. The first small heads of broccoli should be ready to harvest in early spring, about 220 days after planting
