Grow your own Bonsai Broccoli plant

UPDATE: April Fools! Unfortunately science hasn’t granted us the ability to grow Bonsai Broccoli just yet – but don’t you agree it would be a fun idea?

We always love hearing from our customers: especially when they give us great ideas. Danni Miyagi from East London discovered a new craze for growing potted broccoli in Japan. After trying it for herself, she kindly sent us a picture of her successful attempt. Why not up your gardening game and grow a Bonsai Broccoli tree for your kitchen countertop?

It seems Danni isn’t the only one to have cottoned onto this trend, either: on investigating, we’ve seen sales of broccoli rise by an amazing 657%. Did you know that you can grow any head of broccoli in a pot? The florets can be pruned just like a true bonsai tree, allowing you to create your own unique display. What’s more, your ‘prunings’ can then be used in a variety of recipes.

All our broccoli is ready to grow: all you need to do is slice off the very end of the stalk to remove the dry bit, then plant the broccoli in some damp all-purpose compost. Click here to buy one and get growing!
