Growing Calendar for Broccoli (Calabrese) Marathon (June Despatch) - Plants
Delivery: Early June to Mid June
Marathon produces medium sized, uniform, dense heads of bluish-green 'beads' on sturdy plants that will grow well in almost any soil and under any conditions.
Plants despatched late June for cutting late August onwards.
Calabrese has a flavour that some find a little milder than sprouting broccoli. Add to that a shorter growing season and it makes an ideal vegetable for those who like quicker results.
Just like sprouting broccoli, this ‘superfood' is packed full of cancer-fighting properties, vitamins, iron and other health-giving benefits.
Like all young brassicas, it is advisable to use netting or bird scarers when planting out to avoid damage from pigeons.

Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
