How do you grow white sprouting broccoli?

Like other brassicas, white-sprouting broccoli thrives in a fairly heavy, alkaline soil – if your soil is acidic, add lime. Grow in a sheltered spot in firm, rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Plant deeply, 60cm apart, and protect from birds and insects. Water well after planting.

Keeping this in view, how do you grow sprouted broccoli?

Sprouting broccoli can be sown during summer or in late winter for a head start on an autumn harvest. To achieve the latter, sow broccoli seeds in trays kept in the greenhouse and plant out in April once the ground has thawed. For a later harvest to stretch into winter next year, sow seeds in situ from April to July.

Likewise, can you grow broccoli in a grow bag? Broccoli is perfectly happy to be grown in pots. It does get a very wide spread, however, so plant only one per 5-gallon container. You can fit two to three plants in a 15-gallon container. Either plant them directly in your container or start them indoors – broccoli seeds germinate at 75-80 F.
