Best to Start Indoors Start seeds 4-5 weeks before last expected spring frost and again in midsummer for a fall crop. Sow seeds 1 in. apart in a container of seed starting mix, cover 1/2 in. deep and keep evenly moist. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant out. When seedlings are 3-4 in. tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions, then transplant 12-18 in. apart into rich, well-drained soil in full sun. 

To Start Outdoors Sow seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Plant groups of 2-3 seeds 1/2 in. deep and 12 in. apart. Thin to 1 strong seedling per group so plants have room to mature and grow.

Broccoli needs rich, fertile soil and cool growing weather to produce big heads. Prepare soil well and do not let seedlings get too crowded before thinning or transplanting or the heads will be stunted. Keep well watered and weeded. Feed at least monthly with all purpose fertilizer. Use non-toxic B.T. (Bacillus thuringiensis) products to repel caterpillar pests as necessary.

Harvest and Use: Harvest the main head before florets open by cutting about half way down the stalk. This will encourage numerous side shoots to form for extended picking from each plant.
