Nutritious and delicious, broccoli is a must grow in your vegie patch! This one little plant gives so much back - the heads, stems and tender leaves can all be cooked or thrown raw into your salads, giving you a variety of textures and flavours. It used to be regarded as a winter only vegetable, but newer varieties mean broccoli can now be grown all year round. Broccoli seed can be sown from summer to autumn in all but the coldest districts. In cold areas, it’s better to start broccoli seeds in late spring or early summer so that the plants are well on their way before winter arrives.
Suitable for all climatic zones.
