Broccoli Heirloom Seeds

Depending on your area start heirloom organic broccoli seeds indoors February-April for planting out in your garden.  Most spring crops are set out around April 10th and fall crops around July 1st.  Direct seed broccoli May-June for fall crop.  Remember broccoli is a cool weather crop so adjust your planting time accordingly.  With a little skill you can get a spring and fall crop!

Soil Requirements:  Heirloom organic broccoli will grow well in reasonably fertile, well-drained, moist soils with plenty of added organic matter. We add lots of rabbit manure or some well composted chicken manure.  A mulch will help keep the ground cool and moist. The pH should be between 6.0 and 7.0 for optimum growth. A pH within this range will discourage clubroot disease and maximize nutrient availability.  

Fertilizing Organic Broccoli:  If you have blended or mulched a nice manure in you should be fine.  Don't forget when transplanting to add a little bone and blood meal to each hole.  A teaspoon of each will get your transplants off to a good start! 

Enjoy:  Steaming to stir fry broccoli is just yummy!  Remember, young broccoli leaves actually have more nutrients than the head and can be used in salads, stir fries or just about anything.
