Organic Waltham-29 Broccoli Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Waltham-29 Broccoli seeds have 90 days to maturity. This cold-hardy broccoli is especially good for fall harvests. It was developed to handle the increasing cold temperatures of fall. Compact plants reach 50 cm in height and produce 15 cm blue-green central heads surrounded by numerous small side shoots for an extended harvest.
Direct seed outdoors as soon as the chance of hard frost has passed or start indoors 4-6 weeks before planting out date. Sow seed .5 cm deep and keep moist until seedlings emerge. Space plants 20-30 cm apart in rows spaced 45 cm apart. Fertile, moist soil and cool weather produces the best broccoli. Spring, early summer and fall crops are the best quality. Harvest the main head and allow side shoots to develop for ongoing harvest. If flea beetles are a problem, cover young plants with row covers.
