 SOWING - Historically a cool-weather crop. Sprouting broccoli can be sown during summer or in late winter for a head start on an autumn harvest. To achieve the latter, sow broccoli seeds in trays kept in the greenhouse and plant out in April once the ground has thawed. For a later harvest to stretch into winter next year, sow seeds in situ from April to July. (Clay is fine)
