Early Purple Sprouting Broccoli is extremely useful and easy to grow. This hardy winter vegetable produces good yields of tasty purple heads (turning green when cooked) which can be harvested during late winter and early spring, at a time when fresh vegetables from the garden are often in short supply. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24"). Sow sprouting broccoli seeds in a well-prepared seed bed from March to June at a depth of 13mm (1/2") and spaced 30cm (12") apart. Transplant to their final positions around 5 weeks later when the seedlings have four or five leaves. When growing purple sprouting broccoli, choose a sheltered position in firm, rich fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well-rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant purple sprouting broccoli deeply for stability at 60cm (24") apart, and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
