Set transplants of heading broccoli grown from broccoli seeds out by the time they have 6-8 true leaves. When plants are 20-25cm (8-10”) tall, push soil around stems up to the bottom of the first big leaf to encourage side shoots. Cut central head when buds begin to fatten and before yellow flowers appear. Side shoots will develop at leaf joints. Cutting the head from heading broccoli lower on the stem will encourage fewer, but larger side shoots. Keep picking side shoots to keep the plant producing. Per 100’ row: 170 seeds, per acre: 30M seeds.
