Harvest Spring Brassicas

As you harvest your Spring Cabbages leave some stem in the ground, make a cross cut on the top and you should get new shoots growing to provide more leafy spring greens.

Keep cutting your Red and Green Kale, if you take the leaves from the crown first you will encourage tender side-shoots to form which will keep the plants cropping for many weeks.

Harvest sprouting broccoli in the same way and check it regularly as broccoli can put on a quick spurt of growth during mild weather. A top dressing of Organic Extra will give all your over-wintered vegetables a real boost to encourage further cropping.
