  • How to Grow Me

    Sowing seed

    • From April to June can sow seed directly outdoors

    • Ensure is rich soil (e.g. compost) and is wet. 

    • Place 1-2 seeds in soil, covering with at least 3 cm of soil

    • Allow approx. 15 cm between plants and 35 cm between rows if planting more than one row

    • Ensure they get as much direct sunlight as possible.

    • If 2 seeds germinate cut the weaker seedlings at stem, leaving the strongest remaining plant (germination approximately 10 - 14 days after sowing)

     

    Transplanting

    • When plants are approx. 1 month in the soil, recommended to transplant (Moving to different location for optimum growing)

    • Soil to transplant into needs to be well drained, fertile soil (e.g. compost) in warm weather, in a sunny position 

    • Ensure seedling has enough water - on hot days water twice per day, on dull days once every 2 days

    • Ensure soil around plant is kept weed free

    • To encourage growth and deter pests, feed every 3 - 4 weeks with organic fertiliser (e.g. dried seaweed fertiliser, sachets available on sow.ie)

     

    Growing Time: 

    • Approx. 45 - 60 days

     

    Harvest: 

    • Ready to harvest when side florets start to become loose

    • Cut at base of stalk

     

    Tip: Broccoli loves sunshine when it’s growing!
