Growing Calendar for Broccoli Seeds - Summer Purple
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Broccoli 'Summer Purple' is a breeding breakthrough! It has been specially bred for summer cropping - from late June to October, depending on sowing date and season.
Broccoli 'Summer Purple' produces high quality, well-coloured spears with good heat tolerance. A very high yielding and versatile variety.
Easy to grow, quick to prepare and very good for you!
Growing Broccoli is Simple - Sow the seed thinly in drills and cover them over with soil, lightly firming with the head of the rake. Mark the row, labelling one end with the variety and sowing date. Keep the seed bed moist. Seedlings are ready to plant out when they are about 4in/10cm to 6in/15cm tall. Water the planting hole before firmly transplanting to their permanent position, 1in/2-5cm deeper than in the seedbed and 18in/45cm apart.
