Broccoli 'Waltham'

First grown in Waltham,Massachusetts, this popular Farmers' Market variety forms large heads. Pick side shoots for up to 3 months. Yields more than 1kg per plant.

How to grow

Prefering a slightly alkaline soil, like other members of the cabbage family, broccoli is easy to grow, and if you plant the sprouting varieties, they can be continually harvested for up to 3 months. Prepare the ground with plenty of well rotted manure or compost. Always pick the central head first, this will encourage the prolific growth od side shoots. Pick these shoots regularly and do not allow it to flower, as this will stop production of new shoots.In windy gardens the plants might need to be staked as they become top heavy.
