Purple broccoli is an amazing vegetable with even more health benefits than green broccoli.

  • Whenever you can get a purple form of a vegetable that is usually green, the health benefits shoot up to a new level.
  • Purple broccoli should be planted about 50 cm apart in a nice sunny location.
  • Try and keep it evenly moist right through the growing season.
  • You can expect to start harvesting approximately 10 weeks after planting.
  • Feed your plant regularly with a mixture of Powerfeed and Seasol.
  • You can keep snails and caterpillars under control by hunting them down at night with a torch.
  • Purple broccoli is part of the Swan Valley Nursery range and can be found at your local garden centre or Bunnings Warehouse store.
