They tend to be purchased as rooted plants and thus can be planted at any time it is not frozen outside but buying them dormant in early spring and planting then gives them time to settle before they wake up in late spring.
Do you just ask for some spent coffee grounds in the shop?
I'm growing Broccoli this year for the first time, or more correctly my 5 year old son is. You can grow them in a deep trough but that means being assiduous with watering. As a Brassica you will get lots of interesting caterpillars...
If it is just the leaves that were zapped then they do regrow, if the stem is zapped then I have never seen them grow from roots so suggest to try some more seed.
This has been doing the rounds for some time, but using those cheap clear plastic tubs as mini greenhouses is a good dual use/cheap hack.
Use sulphate of iron. It turns it black and kills it almost immediately and it feeds the grass. Available at every GC and shed.
I should have said Echium pininana, which is semi-hardy in the UK.
1. A type of fern, possibly something good, so keep it.
2. Definite weed, remove all of it
3. Tree seedlings of some kind, possibly a willow variety.
My inclination is to leave it and let it grow...the leaves are large and pleasant shaped, so worth it for foliage alone. It does remind me of a few things but also nothing in particular.
I think it is dead but does not know it yet, but also think it is worth putting outside and seeing if it grows or not.
