Growing Instructions:
Waltham broccoli seeds grow best in cool weather, so starting the seeds indoors 5-6 weeks before the last expected frost will ensure a faster crop. Shortly before the last frost and when the seedlings reach 6" tall, plant them 1-2' apart in rows 2-3' apart. For direct sowing, plant them 1" deep and 3" apart in full sun and rich soil about 2 weeks before the last expect frost. Germination can take place in temps as low as 40°. For fall planting, direct sow in late July and August. Keep seedlings watered, remove weeds and provide stake support if they become too top heavy.
