I've been very disappointed with this Spring's broccoli. Not because it didn't grow or was eaten off by pigeons but because what grew WASN'T broccoli!
The packet clearly shows a picture of green 'heading' broccoli........
but the plants are something completely different - nearer to field rape. One at the front of this photo looks like broccoli, most are strange yellow flowered things and two seem to be cabbages.
I don't know where the seed came from - it was part of a bundle of packets found in the polytunnel of our allotment when we took it over - but it's clearly some discount store. 4 packets of seed for 99p may seem like a bargain - but not if it doesn't do what it says on the pack!
