Planting Instructions: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Keep watered and fertilized. Cut before buds open for best harvest.
Suggestions: Broccoli is a good producer again when planted in summer for fall harvest. For a low calorie side dish, try broccoli with lemon juice - it's delicious!
