2. Broccoli Varieties
Another thing that you need to consider when you are trying to successfully grow broccoli at home is the type of broccoli. There are several different types of broccoli from which to choose.
Most varieties of broccoli will be green in color. However, there are some purple varieties that are quite tasty as well. There are early season varieties available that can be planted earlier in the growing season and will produce a harvest for a long period of time. Other types will take a longer time to grow and are typically planted midseason.
When you are choosing the type of broccoli to grow in your home garden it is important to make sure that you choose one that is good for your particular soil type and seasons. Talking to someone in a grow club or asking someone at your local farmers market can give you an idea of what type of broccoli that you should be growing.
