Lieutenant Broccoli (2-Pack)
Enjoy delicious broccoli flavor—even during warm spells! While brassica veggies like broccoli prefer the cooler growing seasons of spring and fall, Broccoli adapts well to warm weather, letting you grow this tasty treat a little longer into late spring and planting it a bit earlier in late summer for a fall harvest. The nutritious, dark green, smooth heads on medium-sized stems taste great raw, steamed, or stir-fried—and they provide a terrific source of vitamins and protein. Plus, the plant produces smaller side shoots to extend your harvest! Plant in full sun, and water plants consistently for the best production.Read More

Welcome your Plant
1. Remove Packaging
Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.
2. Check the Soil
Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.
3. Adjustment Period
Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.
Long term Care
1. Location, location
Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.
2. Soil & drainage
Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.
3. Hungry plants
Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
