Re: Hot from Facebook: New to Broccoli?

Broccoli can be harvested more than once. But it can get wormy once the warm weather arrives. Once the worms arrive just remove the plant. The heads on the later harvests will be smaller then the first one. Also you want to harvest before the buds start to flower. Broccoli is one of the easier crops.  Good luck.

Answer

It's pretty simple! Cut the stems just below the head and enjoy! If you have any other questions related to broccoli, be sure to ask our horticultural experts who are available for Q&A.
