Thompson & Morgan StartAGarden Broccoli Summer Purple 75 Seed

£1.49

Broccoli - Summer Purple

This variety is especially bred for summer cropping with good heat tolerance. It produces high yields of tasty, purple spears through summer into autumn on robust plants. Pick regularly to promote fresh flushes of spears.

Sow outdoors in a seed bed for transplanting later on. Prepare the soil by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. Sow at 4 week intervals from March to June. Sow thinly, 1cm deep and cover lightly with soil. Keep watered during dry weather. Transplant seedlings to their final position when they have 4-5 leaves and are large enough to handle, about 4 weeks from sowing. Allow a minimum of 60cm between plants and 75cm between rows. Firm in well and water regularly. Harvest before the flowers open and when shoots are around 10cm long. Regular picking will encourage more shoots.
