How to Grow Broccoli From Seeds:
Broccoli is packed full of vitamins, especially vitamins A, C and D, and is among the more popular dark green vegetables. This hardy vegetable is part of the cabbage family and in many areas of the country you can produce two crops a year, both in the summer and the fall. Make plans for planting your broccoli seeds after the last chance of frost has passed in your area for a summer harvest, or in midsummer for a fall crop.
1.Plant your broccoli seeds in a location with full sun and rich, well-drained soil. Allow enough room to space the seeds 18 inches apart and provide 3 feet between rows, if planting more than one row.
2.Clear the planting area of all foliage, rocks or debris. Use a mechanized tiller or hand garden tools to break up the soil to a depth of 12 inches.
3.Amend the soil with an inch of compost and/or other organic matter. Add fertilizer, such as 5-10-10 to the planting area as directed on the label. Level the area with a rake.
4.Sow the broccoli seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep and space the seeds 18 inches apart. You can space the seeds closer together and then thin the seedlings later, if you prefer. Cover the seeds and water to moisten the soil.
5.Supply an inch of water weekly throughout the growing season, unless rainfall does. Reapply fertilizer around the broccoli when the plants are half grown.
