How to Save Cauliflower, Broccoli & Brassica Seeds


QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, by Rob Bob’s Aquaponics and Backyard Farm

We were very pleased with the “60 Days” cauliflower this year so let 5 plants go to flower so we could save some seed.. The same process can be used for saving Broccoli & other Brassica seeds as well..
It is important to just have one variety of brassica oleracea (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards & kale) flowering at once or you could end up with some cross pollination..

Saving seeds is easy to do & a fun way to get the kids involved in the gardening process.. They really enjoy then planting the saved seeds & watching them grow.. They are also more likely to eat them we have found 😉
