Growing broccoli at home #Gardening
Soil : Well-drained soil amended with compost.
Watering : Keep well watered. Mulch helps keep roots cool and moist during hot weather.
Pest Problems : Cabbage loopers and imported cabbageworms are voracious caterpillars that can make alarmingly short work of the leaves. Their color camouflages them on the plant perfectly, so you'll notice their damage before you find them.
When to Harvest : Harvest when heads have reached full size but before they loosen.
