Growing Calendar for Broccoli Summer Purple-Plants
Delivery: Early May to Mid May
A breeding breakthrough, specially bred for summer cropping - from late June to October. Summer Purple produces high quality, well-coloured spears with good heat tolerance.
A very high yielding and versatile variety. Sprouting Broccoli is so good for you, it is brimmimg with vitamins and is regarded by nutritionists as a superfood, high in cancer-fighting phytochemicals.
16 plants gives you the potential of 40 florets in one season. That’s excellent value compared to high-end broccoli Summer Purple you can get in the supermarket at a price.
We recommend you catch-crop with an intermittent row of lettuce which grows faster so you have something to enjoy while you wait for the prize of purple broccoli.
Very poor quality seedings sent as plants, most still growing but look very sickly
The plants had been in the container a long time as the leaves were yellow and sadly a couple of broken stems. Our postal delivery appears to be erratic at times.
All plants had badly yellowed leaves, some had black spots and rotted stalks. No replacements available so had to get a refund.
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.
Once you have received our superb young plants follow these simple instructions...
