When to Sow Nine Star Broccoli Seeds

April to May

Plant Out

June

Harvest

Feb to May following year

What to do Next

Outdoor sowings should be thinned out to 7-10cm (3-4in) apart , then once plants are large enough , lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions 60cm (24in) apart and 90cm (36in) between the rows to grow on to maturity. As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves, prick off into trays 5cm (2") apart or thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out when about 15cm (6") tall to the same spacings as detailed above.

Handy Tip

Once the main head has been harvested, the plant will produce small heads over the following weeks.
