  1. A description of Broccoli

    History: It is believed that broccoli was introduced to England from Italy in 1724. There were two original varieties at that time, one white and one purple, and until the turn of the 19th C. the purple form was the most common. All current garden varieties are descended from these two. Cultivation: Sow seed 1/4" deep in soil-less mix in flats 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Keep moist, under lights, until germination. Harden off and plant out 12 - 18" apart. Successive plantings prolong the harvest. Companions: onions and oregano repel pests, especially the cabbage moth.
