Growing Summer Purple Broccoli is simple - Sow the seed thinly in drills and cover them over with soil, lightly firming with the head of the rake. Mark the row, labelling one end with the variety and sowing date. Keep the seed bed moist. Seedlings are ready to plant out when they are about 4in/10cm to 6in/15cm tall. Water the planting hole before firmly transplanting to their permanent position, 1in/2-5cm deeper than in the seedbed and 18in/45cm apart.
