Growing Calendar for Broccoli (Calabrese) Marathon (June Despatch) - Plants
This Item is Still Growing...
Order now for Mid June 2018 delivery
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.
Still all survived re-planting
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.
