Broccoli in an EB
« on: January 03, 2019, 07:40:27 am »
I've tried broccoli before, but with limited success -- with 6 plants per box, the heads were very small -- perhaps 4" +/-.  I was wondering if anyone was very successful, and had any tips, including varieties that seem more suited to an EB.

We've successfully grown broccoli in our EBs. I just used the Bonnie transplants, 6 per EB. Size wise in the 4 inch range, harvest carefully and the plants will push new heads, these will be smaller, but it extends the harvest. Happy New Year

I put 3 plants per box.  Heads @ 6to 7 inches.  I do the same with cauliflower and just picked a 2# 6 oz head.
