Broccoli, Purple Sprouting early

Don't mix this one up with the green broccoli you know from shops. These are called calabrese in the gardener's language! This one is the purple sprouting broccoli - our own blend of 5 varieties - that will yield delicious and healthy spears from February until May.

The best time to sow Sprouting Broccoli is in June/July/August (definitely not earlier!) Sow one seed per module about 1.5cm deep and about 4 weeks later plant out the modules or pot them on into 9cm pots before planting out

A spacing of 75cm each way is the minimum
