Broccoli

Hello. I grew broccoli for the first time this year. I have been harvesting first the big heads and then the smaller heads for several weeks now. What do I do next? Should the plants be dug up? Thank you!

    When they stop producing fresh shoots just pull them up and plant something else. 😊

    Don’t plant Brassicas in the same spot, remember three year  ‘crop rotation’.

    My pleasure Grayfleur!

    From BBC gardening:

    Rotate your crops annually to avoid disease. Don't grow brassicas on the same plot more often than one year in three, as moving the crop helps avoid club root and other deseases
