Broccoli is a hardy cool season veggie that will crop a second and third time. For best results, seeds should be sown in later summer or seedlings planted in early autumn, just after rain is ideal. Hot weather results in the head breaking into flower.
Work in compost or manure and lime a few weeks before planting. Keep well watered and harvest first head with a short stem above a pair of leave to stimulate second and third crops down the stem.
