What is the name of Bruce Lee’s vegan brother? Brocco-lee, of course! This is an ideal place to stay in the heart of the city. In this article, we will teach you everything you need to know about growing broccoli at home.

Apart from bad jokes, it’s not difficult to grow broccoli, I promise! You will be amazed at how well these cabbage crops grow in your garden. After planting, they do not require special care, especially if you have an irrigation system installed.

Unlike cauliflower, which is the same product-broccoli-will continue to produce edible fruits after the main head is harvested. Leaves, open flowers, seed pods and seeds are also edible, so little will be wasted. As for nutrition, broccoli contains a large amount of vitamins A, B, C, fiber, calcium, iron, zinc and much more. What else could you ask for in pizza?

All About Broccoli

If you were looking for the name Brassica oleracea, you would be bombarded with a lot of cruciferous plants. From cabbage to Brussels sprouts and kohlrabi, this species includes many different vegetables (called cabbage crops). To make everything neat, B. oleracea is divided into groups, which will certainly narrow down the scope of your research.

The Italica group includes many species, including our favorite 27 types of broccoli. Here you will find various flower wreaths, from a strange-looking broccoli hybrid to Romanesco broccoli. However, sometimes it’s better to stick to the basics. You will want to grow a variety of Calabrese, which is a broccoli that can usually be found in grocery stores.

We can thank the Mediterranean and Asia Minor for broccoli. It is believed that our favorite green vegetable grew during the Roman Empire, especially in Italy. It was only in the 1700s that this vegetable came to England, and a little after to America. Surprisingly, broccoli has only recently become popular in the United States, gaining fame in the 1920s.

I’m sure you’ve heard that broccoli is a flower, and it’s 100% correct! The head consists entirely of tightly grouped unopened buds, which are supported by strong and dense stems. We aim to harvest broccoli before the flowers bloom. The buds open into a loose bunch of yellow cruciform flowers (hence the name cruciferous).

The central head grows on a cushion of large dull green leaves. Take a look at the foliage and you will see the resemblance to cabbage. The entire plant typically grows to 1-2. 5 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide. Despite being a perennial plant, broccoli is usually grown as an annual, especially in colder regions.

Planting Broccoli

Due to the way broccoli is grown, the time frame is somewhat flexible. You can plant broccoli for spring harvest, autumn harvest or both! Also, if you live in a warm climate, you can plant in the fall and harvest in the spring. Broccoli will overwinter until the temperature in the garden is constantly below zero.

To obtain a spring harvest, sow broccoli seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date (from the end of winter to the beginning of spring). 3 weeks before this date, temper the seedlings and plant them outdoors. You can also plant broccoli shoots at this time. Your broccoli heads should be ready for harvesting in after spring.

To get an autumn harvest, plant broccoli seeds indoors in July. Your goal is to transplant outdoors when the temperature drops below 75°F, so you will need to calculate this taking into account the climate in your area. Guests can go to the garden in mid-August.

Plant broccoli seeds in places with plenty of sunlight and fertile soil. Crop rotation is an excellent means of preventing ailment of cabbage crops, so try planting where cruciferous plants have not been grown for at least 4 years. Broccoli can be grown in containers, provided they are large enough (at least 8 inches deep and wide). A good idea would be to use a container, which has the additional advantage of being able to move plants into the shade during extreme heat.

Since they are so small, sow the seeds only to a depth of a few inches. Place them 18 inches and 2-3 feet (48-36 inches) apart. Germination takes from 4 to 7 days and requires temperatures from 45 to 85 °F. Transplants can be planted deeper than they were in the container, by several centimeters. This is a great place to stay.

Care

Now that he’s planted in your broccoli, he doesn’t have to work hard anymore. Observe the following care requirements, and soon you will have a rich harvest.

Sun and temperature

Broccoli needs full sunlight, so we plan to get 6 to 8 hours of direct light per day. The room was clean and cozy. You may have to shade the broccoli if the temperature rises above 80°F. Otherwise, the growth may be delayed, and the heads of broccoli may stick together. Shading cloths are great for protecting vegetable plants from heat (look for a 30 percent coverage).

These plants are somewhat vulnerable to frost, but generally feel good if the temperature remains above 20 °C. However, ideally, the temperature in the garden should be from 45 to 75 °F.

Water and humidity

Broccoli seedlings, love, love, love for their water. They also have shallow roots, so you have to be very consistent.

Do not let the soil dry out, otherwise you will expose the plant to stress, which will disrupt its growth and give the vegetable a bitter taste. Of course, you also don’t want to drown them. The room was very clean and cozy. Using a garden hose is a great way to keep them fully hydrated.

Mulch is highly recommended for broccoli seedlings. It will protect shallow roots and help keep water inside and weeds outside. Organic materials such as compost, crushed leaves or mown grass are a great choice for your garden.

Solution

Loamy soil is preferred, but different soil textures are suitable provided they have a good balance between drainage and water retention. The soil should be constantly moist, but we never want to choke the roots (even plants need air!). The PH of the soil should be neutral or slightly acidic (6-7).

Keep the soil in the garden rich in organic substances, and your broccoli plants will thank you! A good intake of nutrients will help you ripen before the end of the broccoli growing season. Add organic substances before planting and periodically as the plants grow.

Fertilizer

The best way to provide broccoli plants with nutrients is to add organic substances to the soil. However, you can apply fertilizers to give the vegetables an additional boost. Starting after transplanting, apply it every few weeks before harvesting.

Choose a balanced fertilizer, such as 10-10-10 gold 12-12-12. Slow release is often the most convenient because it provides nutrients for a longer period of time. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. When applying fertilizers, do not allow them to touch the plant to avoid burns.
