Broccoli (Sprouting) Purple Rain F1 Vegetable Seeds
This British bred hybrid is extremely productive. It will continue to produce fresh young, deeply coloured spears for weeks on end which taste tender.
Plants have good heat tolerance and are slow to bolt, therefore no winter cold period is required. Can be sown little and often for a continuous supply from summer into late autumn.
Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow indoors: January-March, 1.5cm(1/2") deep in pots or trays of seed compost. Keep moist and warm. Transplant to final position when approx. 10cm(4") tall. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out 60cm(24") apart.
Harvest: July-November. Pick the young shoots regularly to be sure of getting the best flavour and to encourage further cropping.
