|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day third of February, repeating indefinitely

Erica’s Notes

Somewhat more challenging than kale, collards, or cabbage, broccoli is still a fairly easy crop in the mild climate of the Maritime Northwest. Only very occasionally do our summer temperatures get a bit hotter than broccoli prefers, and spring and fall weather naturally suits broccoli very well.

Start Broccoli indoors from mid-February to mid-March and plan to set 4 to 6 week old plants out in late-March or April.

In Spring, opt for supermarket-style heading broccoli (also called calabrese). For reliable overwintering production, look at the sprouting broccolis.
