If you are growing broccoli, how you achieve "florets" is how you cut them up. You keep chopping the stem down to get little "trees or florets." Here are some sites to show you how:
We eat broccoli at least twice a week and I cook for all my pets and they eat them too - cats, dogs, dragon and occasionally the canary wants some too.
They grow slowly and get pretty big
They need at least a foot and a half in full sun cause they make little bushes. I feed with miracle, a granular fertilizer, compost, and azomite(ground volcanic ash sold on amazon] it takes 60to 90 days and after you cut off the main head leave it cause smaller side heads will grow. I am in the mid west and have no problems they just grow slow
