How do I grow and care for broccoli?
Broccoli is a great garden plant. Nothing tastes better than crunchy, fresh-picked broccoli eaten raw or cooked. Broccoli is easiest done by starting plants indoors 4 to 6 weeks before setting them out. In warmer states, seeds can be sown directly into the garden. Being a cool-weather crop, it is best when set out early with cabbage and cauliflower for a midsummer feast. Be sure to harvest the heads when they are tight. If the flowers start to open, they become bitter. —Gardening experts George and Becky Lohmiller, Hancock, New Hampshire
