After Broccoli goes to seed, do I need to replant for the followong year?
Depends on where you live. If you live in a frost-free area where temperatures never go below 32 F, you might have some volunteers sprout. You may see lots of little tiny plants where the origianl was and these will grow to form new plants.
Broccoli is an annual and a cool weather crop.. After it goes to seed, yank it out, because no one will want to eat it. Plant new broccoli when the weather starts to cool off again.
When Brocolli successfully creates seeds, be sure you take it out and replant them indoor first. Be sure you have flower pot you can use, usually small flower pot. Grow them for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks, replant them outdoor and Brocolli will do the rest.
Best to sow indoor is between near end of winter and early spring. Best to replant seedlings is mid-spring. Harvest them in the autumn if still there.
