Plant in a well drained, sunny location. Broccoli can be planted in containers outdoors. Soil should be of a pH between 6.5 and 7.5. Prepare the bed with manures and compost and provide extra nitrogen supplement if the soil is sandy.
Sow seeds « inch deep. After thinning, plants should be about 10 inches apart. Successive sowings should occur at one month intervals. If starting seeds indoors, use 4 inch peat pots and transplant when 4 true leaves have appeared (6-8 weeks after planting.)
