Growing Calendar for Broccoli Claret (Sprouting)-Plants
Delivery: Late July to Mid August
Providing an excellent crop from March-April. The purple spears are extra large and succulent, and can be harvested for up to 4 weeks.
Your plants on arrival
Your plants will arrive to you in a plastic blister pack which provides the perfect humid environment for young cabbage plants while being delivered to your home.
Remove all outer packaging and remove the plants from the plastic blister pack. Water the plugs of soil so they are moist but not waterlogged.
Try to plant up straight away in your vegetable patch, into rich soil pressing the plugs into the soil firmly. Space plants 25-30cm (10-12in) apart and cover with fleece to keep pigeons from eating the sweet, succulent leaves.
Water young plants daily morning or evening, or both in particularly dry and/or warm weather.
A little disappointed when plants arrived as they seemed half dead, but they soon perked up once they were planted out and are now growing well.
Arrived in a reasonable state planted immediately - doing well tried to buy some more as present for son but sold out?
Growing OK at the allotment so far!
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.
