Heading Broccoli - Start broccoli seed indoors 5-7 weeks before your anticipated planting date. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-85 degrees. Harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day 1-2 weeks prior to transplanting time. Set transplants in the garden 2-4 weeks before average last spring frost. Direct seeding is only recommended for areas with a long, cool spring season that will allow full maturity before summer heat sets in. For a fall harvest, plant transplants about 70 days before average first frost. Broccoli can be successfully direct seeded for a fall harvest 90-100 days before average first frost date. Broccoli is vert frost tolerant.

Sprouting Broccoli (Spring Rapini) - Start broccoli seed indoors 5-7 weeks before your anticipated planting date. Optimum soil temp for seed germ is 50-85 degrees. Harden off plants 1 week prior to transplanting time. Set transplants in the garden 2-4 weeks before average last spring frost. Or, direct seed outside 2-4 weeks before average last frost date. Spring Raab can be sown again mid-to-late-summer for fall harvest.
