1. Pinch out the newly developing central head in the early spring or fall with your fingers, about a month after transplanting your broccoli into the garden.
    2. Pinch off all of the side or lateral shoots as they develop to promote one large central head.

  • Mulch over the plants roots to help retain moisture, retard weeds and keep the plant cool. Broccolini needs lots of water, at least 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm.) per week. Broccolini will be ready to harvest when the heads begin to form and the leaves are a brilliant, dark green, usually 60-90 days after planting.

    Subsequently, question is, does broccoli grow back after you cut it? In general, broccoli plants can be harvested two or three times or for a period of up to three months. Once cut, the plant will produce smaller side heads for several weeks. Broccoli should be harvested when the heads are small, tight and firm.

    Moreover, should I prune broccoli leaves?

    Once the central crown is removed from the plant, you can begin trimming out a few leaves from the plant on a regular basis. Theyll need those leaves to photosynthesize, which is how they feed themselves. Clip lower leaves on your broccoli plant first, removing them where they meet the stem by cutting or snapping.
