Planting+
Broccoli seed requires no prior treatment but soaking overnight in lukewarm water will encourage germination.

Broccoli prefers a water retaining soil that is well fertilised in the winter.
Care+
Water broccoli plants extra during dry periods. Give it lots of fertiliser throughout the season. Keep the bed weed-free and your broccoli will thrive.
Specifics+
Broccoli is really good for you! It contains glucosinolates that fight all types of cancer including prostate, stomach, intestinal and breast cancer! It even helps fight Altzheimers! A short turn in the wok seems to be better than boiling if you want to keep the glocusinalate content high!

Broccoli is one of the Brassicaceae or Cruciferea. Many types of cabbage-like plants are practically the same, genetically speaking and the Latin name for many of these edible cabbages is 'Brassica oleracea'. All the varieties have been selected and refined over the last 5,000 years. Broccoli is specified as 'Brassica oleracea convar. botrytis var. cymosa' and differs from the cauliflower because it really does have little flowers, where cauliflower does not.

Brassica oleracea convar. botrytis var. cymosa are annuals or bi-annuals. The annual is the early broccoli, bi-annuals are the winter variety. The main difference is that summer broccoli develops a large head and winter broccoli lots of smaller ones.

Brassica comes in many varieties, early, late and even all year rounders and some that can withstand the cold while others cannot. So keep to the advice on the packet for when to sow or you will have problems - for instance, fast growers are usually less hardy and not suitable for harvest after frost.

This broccoli 'Marathon' F1 hybrid is a summer broccoli, semi-early. Not hardy it must be harvested before the first frost.
