Pinetree Broccoli Mix

4 reviews

The biggest advantage to the broccoli mix is that it gives you a variety of different maturities from early in the season to late. The mix includes most of the varieties that we sell and a few other recommended varieties.

PLANTING

Brassica oleracea

Germination: 3-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Thin to the strongest seedling. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before last frost. Space 12-18" apart. Sow in early to midsummer for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 55ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 12-18” apart. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

Harvest: Pick when heads are tight before flower buds starts to open. For varieties that produce side shoots keep picked for a longer production

Tips: Provide fertile soil, rich in organic matter from the very beginning of its growth in the garden. Give adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Still growing.

I tried these in two batches, but the second batch was enjoyed by slugs. I should have started all of them early.

broccoli mix

Just picked my first head. I’ve used it for years and like it because the plants ripen at different times.

enjoyed these

I'm in south texas so broc can be a challenge. Several of these did really well in my zone 8a. Just wish I knew which ones or I had saved seeds.
