Although not very popular with kids, broccoli happens to be one of the most nutritious vegetables around. It is packed with many different vitamins and minerals. They are also rich in antioxidants and contain cancer-fighting compounds. They taste great when stir fried with oyster sauce, or even steamed on its own with some salt and pepper. Broccoli grows from seeds, which can be bought from the local gardening supply store.
Broccoli requires full sunlight. They also need lots of nutrition as well. The soil should be prepared with lots of compost and manure 2 weeks before the actual planting date. The soil should also be free from weeds. It should also be loose to encourage the plant to grow. Plant the seeds around 18 inches apart to give adequate space for growth. Broccoli needs a lot of water so they need to be watered regularly, about once a week. Broccoli will mature approximately 3 months after sowing.
