Vegetable Garden: Growing Cool-Season Vegetables
By: Julie Day
Cool-Season Vegetable #3: Broccoli
Broccoli is very cold hardy but will quickly “bolt” (go to seed) in hotter temperatures. It is most easily grown from transplanted seedlings set out about a month before the last frost in spring, or about two months before the first frost of fall.
Different varieties have different maturation rates, so choose a variety likely to mature before the weather gets too hot in your area. Cauliflower is grown in a similar fashion but is both more heat and cold sensitive than broccoli and does best in the fall.
