Purple sprouting broccoli


Takes about 10 months to mature, but it’s so worth it. 

Soil prepared in April and now 20.5. Seedlings are 6 inches high and ready to go. Dug in manure and planted 65 cm apart and covered with net adding bone meal to soil. Watered in and with rain this weekend, should be watered in. Slugs and snails leave alone as I have added a beer trap for them.  Got early spring version and looking forward to cutting and coming again hopefully in  February-March time.
