Product Description

DAYS TO HARVEST
65-80 from transplant

SOWING
For early planting, start seeds indoors with soil temperatures ~60 degrees (minimum 55 degrees). Plant ~1/4″ in soil and keep evenly moist. Make sure seedlings have enough light otherwise they may become leggy and not develop properly upon transplanting. Harden off transplants around 4  or 5 weeks by bringing trays outdoors a few days to a week before transplanting. The plants should have 3 or 4 true leaves at this point.
In cooler climates, seeds can be direct sown after the soil warms to about 55-60 degrees. If there is still a danger of frost, make sure seedlings are covered. Add 2-3 weeks to harvest date.

LIGHT PREFERENCE
Partial to full sun

SOIL REQUIREMENTS
Prefers clay-loam soils with a pH close to neutral. May require additional calcium or boron.

PLANT HEIGHT
14-18″

PLANT SPACING
~16″ in between plants

HARDINESS
Cole crops and their waxy leaves are particularly well suited to colder growing regions especially if adapted to the area. Broccoli usually withstands a couple frosts.

HARVEST
Watch the main stem as it forms a head and remove main head before or as the head starts to separate (this is the sign that the broccoli is starting to flower). Allow the stock to continue to grow and produce “second” heads or side shoots. Umpqua has good side shoot production.
