Companion Plants for Broccoli

Updated on February 5, 2013


Broccoli is a very nutritious vegetable,and has much flavour,Having a high nutrient/mineral content.Grown naturally/organically and cooking it minimumly(steaming is best in a bamboo steamer-do not use alluminium or alluminium alloy pans/steamers), or even chopped up raw on salads enables one to gain maximum benefit from this very tasty nutritious vegetable.This vegetable is high in anti-oxidents so therefore can help protect and stimulate the immune system

Cooking time is literally only several minutes if done in a good steamer And when dished out its especially lovely with a knob of butter on,and a little sprinkle of herb salt and black pepper.

This vegetable especially benefits diabetics,because of its high nutient content.

The time lapse between harvesting and your belly is important to gain maximum goodness from it,as with any vegetable really. So growing your own organically is quite easy and best way to get it on your table. A nicely prepared composted (organic) bed ,raised if possible. Using certain other plants/flowers and herbs(Lavender,mint,Calandular (Marigold) as companions planted nearby ,and intermitantly in and around your broccoli plants has many advantages ,encourages preditors to eat any harmful pests,adds to flavour, and keeps a healthy diversity/balance within the soil structure.

      Sorry, you misunderstood what I meant. It is accepted that your name is an automatic backlink to your profile page if people want to follow it, but what I was referring to is when people post links to an actual hub they have written in your comment section without asking first. Effectively it is seen as them 'spamming' your hub and it against HP's TOS unless the person whose hub it has been posted on has said it is okay. You do see it a lot with new hubbers who will turn up on your hub and put a comment like:

      "Great hub, you should read my hub on blah blah blah" (and then they add a link to their hub underneath).

      They have already had a free backlink in their comment through their name, but to try and get another one is just seen as rude and greedy.

      Thankyou, You say you do not usually leave your links to your hubs ,but everyone who leaves comments automatically leaves links to their hubs,by default,as it displays their username on the comments box of who sent that message,and all people have to do is to click on the blue lettering and hey presto one is into that persons hub pages in just a few clicks.Isn't that so?...
