Plan now for broccoli planting
Clark MacCallister
Broccoli is a vegetable that many home gardeners can produce successfully in Georgia. It is a cool-season crop that can be planted in early spring or fall. Broccoli is a member of the Brassica family and is closely related to cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. Broccoli is known to be a very healthy food and may potentially reduce certain types of cancer. For a late spring broccoli harvest, start seeds indoors, or in a greenhouse or cold frame, in early February. The new seedlings need to be “hardened off” before being planted in March. Do this by leaving the seedlings outside for a few hours each day for three days. Then, leave the plants out overnight for several more nights. The broccoli seedlings should then be hardy enough for planting in the ground.
