  • Outdoors, make sure that you protect your seed beds from direct sunlight and rainfall.

Common Problems

Why are my Broccoli seeds not sprouting?
Inadequate amount of water will hamper the seed growth. At the same time too much of water also is not good for your seeds. Both under and overwatering are reasons why your Broccoli seeds are not sprouting.
Why won’t my Broccoli form heads?
Environmental stress like extreme cold or heat can hamper the growth of your broccoli. Exposure to extreme cold will lead to buttoning of your broccoli plants. Buttoning means your broccoli plant is growing extremely small or no heads at all. Other factors like lack of nutrients, excessive water, or root damage while transplanting can also bring your broccoli growth to a halt.
Broccoli heads have started flowering
A rise in temperature results in flowering and seeding of the broccoli heads. Ensure that you harvest the broccoli heads for consumption before it flowers and seeds, however small the size of the broccoli head.
