Broccoli  seeds  for home garden 

Broccoli is a nutrient-rich vegetable that can be used in a variety of ways. It can be eaten fresh, lightly sautéed or used in stir fry, soup and pasta or rice-based entrees. Broccoli is high in many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, and potassium . This green veggie can be enjoyed both raw and cooked, but recent research shows that gentle steaming provides the most health benefits

Growing broccoli is not difficult as long as you follow a few simple broccoli growing tips. As a cool-season plant, it’s best to start broccoli indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date if harvesting broccoli plants in midsummer is desired
For a fall crop, broccoli can be direct-seeded into the garden in midsummer
Broccoli prefers full sun and a slightly acidic soil pH of 6 to 7 2. Try growing broccoli in an organic, rich soil and fertilize seedlings and young transplants to maintain steady growth. Use a balanced fertilizer, as too much nitrogen promotes excessive leaf growth. Potassium and phosphorus encourage bloom development
Water regularly since broccoli grows best in moist, but not soggy, soils. Mulch to control weeds and retain soil moisture levels
To prevent disease and control pests, it’s best to plant broccoli in an area of the garden where you haven’t grown Brassicaceae (cabbage family) crops for four years

Growing your own broccoli can be a rewarding experience. Not only is it a healthy addition to your diet, but it can also be a fun and educational activity for the whole family. With the right care and attention, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of this delicious and nutritious vegetable
