There is no better way to describe a new kind of wheatgrass juice than by saying Brocolli Seeds. You can grow your own Brocolli Seeds at home right on your kitchen counter. This is totally hassle-free and it will taste infinitely better than store bought Brocolli. In fact, you will never want to buy store bought again.
Brocolli Seeds are wheatgrass that has not been milled. The natural flavor of the seeds is more intense than the flavor of the wheatgrass. It contains less pectin than traditional wheatgrass and is high in chlorophyll. You might wonder how you can grow your own Brocolli Seeds. Well, that's a trick that I'll reveal in a moment.
First of all, you must get the soil ready for your Brocolli Grower. You can either use regular water or a homemade, organic water solution. I prefer the latter. Regular tap water will result in your seeds turning brown quickly and losing their flavor. Organic or homemade solutions will preserve the enzymes that will help your plants thrive.
You do need to prepare the soil. All you need to do is moisten it a bit with water and sprinkle some baking soda onto it. Leave it to soak. When it has soaked, you can begin to plant your seeds. Keep in mind, however, that your seeds will need proper exposure to light in order for them to grow properly.
Now you are ready to get your Brocolli seeds ready for planting. Take about three to four inches of your soil and place your seeds in holes about two inches deep. Make sure they are deep enough so that the water drains easily. You will need to water your seeds every other day, while they are in their initial growing stage.
Once the seeds have finished growing, you will need to cover them with a plastic sheet to keep the moisture in. After about a week of solidifying, you can remove the plastic and plant your seeds. Allow the soil to drain. When you water again, be sure to water deeply. After about three to four weeks you should see new growth on the top of your plants. It will continue to grow for another two weeks.
You should see a healthy plant in about a year. Make sure you water often. Your plants will go into a dormant state for a few months. This will give time for the plant to grow fully. You can pull the plant out of its resting period and dig it up and put it in the garden. That's all there is to it!
Before you plant your Brocolli seeds, be sure that they are in an area that gets about six to eight hours of bright sunshine. The soil needs to have ample drainage as well. These are basic principles to follow when planting any type of seed. Be sure that the soil is moist, but not saturated. If you can help it, plant your Brocolli in partial sun to reduce the need to water them. They will reward you with magnificent growth!
Remember, if you wish to have some plants left over after harvesting, don't waste them. They can be used in other ways, such as in salads or for pest control. When harvesting fresh seeds from your plantings, it is best to remove all the leaves on a weekly basis, except for the bottom of the stems. The stems have a large number of seeds in them and they can contaminate the rest of the crop. Also, don't harvest seeds from the flower buds.
Harvesting the seeds before they sprout will keep the plant healthier. There is no need to water the sprouts when they are young. In fact, Brocolli seeds should never be watered at all. As they grow, they may become over-watered. They also will need to be sprayed with a commercial weed killer at least every two weeks during their growing season.
The timing for starting your Brocolli cultivation will depend on the variety you choose and on the climate of where you live. In either case, you will want to grow them in partial or full sunlight. It is recommended to mulch your Brocolli when they start to look dry. This will help to protect them from drying out and becoming woody. However, do not over-mulch, as they will lose moisture. Your Brocolli will likely need to be fertilized at least quarterly during their growing season, but there is no need to fertilize them right before you transplant them to the garden.
You can save a lot of money by growing your own Brocolli, so don't let the initial high costs stop you. After harvesting your seeds, simply break up the young plants into several separate pieces and place each piece into small plastic airtight bags. Now, all you need to do is wait for the seeds to germinate. If you have never attempted to grow your own Brocolli before, you may want to get some advice from local landscapers or botanists before you begin.
