When your broccoli plant, growing steadily through winter, develops its first central head, cut it off but leave the plant in the ground.

The plant will then keep producing smaller side shoots that you can harvest as you wish. If the variety is a 'sprouting' kind, such as calabrese or purple sprouting broccoli, you can continue harvesting these succelent side shoots for months and months. Sometimes you even end up with a big sturdy broccoli 'tree'!

Just keep an eye out for aphids, which will start to multiply fast in the warmer spring weather approaching.
