How to Save Seeds

 

Broccoli will cross pollinate with any member of the Brassica oleracea which includes cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and brussel sprouts so separate by 1 mile. They also require overwintering for seed. So you'll want to preserve the head when overwintering by either heavily mulching the plant or if you have colder winters transplant the plant from the garden to a pot of sand and store over winter in an area between 35 to 40 degrees. Once spring arrives simply place the plant back out into the garden and allow to bolt. Once pods appear and dry out harvest and store seeds.
