Broccoli 🥦

Hi folks, 

Ive just started an allotment down the bottom of my garden.. 

Anyways... I have broccoli growing in sewind trays in the greenhouse, thier about 20mm high now, should I plant them out or transfer them into bigger pots and wait until they get bigger. 

Many thanks already for replys

    I wait until they have 2 true leaves (so 4 leaves in all, counting the seed leaves) and then transfer to small pots.  Once they have grown about 5 true leaves and are about 15cm tall, I plant them out and a bit deeper so that no stem is showing between the lowest leaves and the ground, and firm the soil well.  All of my brassicas are grown this way and it works well.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thankyou Bob, I’ll transfer them into a bigger pot to grow. 👍🏻😀👍🏻🌱
