Broccoli is easy to grow as long as you follow some simple cultivation tips. It prefers loamy, humus-rich and well-drained soils, but lighter soils also work. It needs to be watered in dry periods. As warmer temperatures inhibit its growth, it is best grown in spring or autumn. Later in the season, when the main heads have been harvested, small lateral shoots will keep growing which also can be harvested.

The Atlantis F1 broccoli can be direct-sown when soil temperature is minimum 5°C, but it is recommended to use starting seeds.
Pre-cultivate your Atlantis F1 broccoli 4-6 weeks before replanting outdoors. Sow sparsely on damp seed compost and cover lightly with compost. Keep moist and place in a warm area, at a temperature of +22°C. Once the shoots appear, place them in a bright, cooler area. When plants can be handled, transplant 1 per pot of fertilised soil.
