Broccoli Italian Sprouting Seed Tape

Overview

Botanical Name Brassica oleracea

Well rounded heads of consistent size and shape with multiple side shoots for maximum crops over a long period. Excellent source of Vitamin C and antioxidants. Seed tapes are easy to use and require less thinning. Plants can become top heavy as they develop. Pack soil around the base to make them more stable.

We hope you enjoy these broccoli seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

How To Grow

Sow in well cultivated soil and sunny position. Separate the strips and roll out into prepared rows that are 5mm (1/4”) deep and 45cm (18”) apart. Cover with soil and keep moist. Thin seedlings to 45cm (18”) apart when large enough to handle. Harvest when centre heads are well formed, just before the flower heads open. As spears are cut, others will appear in a few weeks. Seedlings emerge 7-14 days.
