Broccoli ‘Amadeus’ F1

Broccoli ‘Amadeus’ F1

For late winter and spring planting for harvesting spring, summer, and autumn. It produces large heads here which were followed by lots of side shoots. I picked heads from one planting over a period of ten weeks.

 

When to sow: Late winter through spring
Where to sow: In seed trays or in a drill in a prepared   garden bed.
Depth to sow: 5mm
Aspect:  Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.
Soil:  Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add   lime if soil is too acid.
Spacing:  Between plants  35 to 40cm
Between rows 60cm

 
Directions: We sow broccoli seed in three ways. The early Amadeus broccoli is sown in seed trays on bottom heat from mid-August until early November. Another method is to plant a 5mm deep drill in outside seed beds and then transplant six weeks later into the final position.
