In Massachusetts I use to see lots of Packman broccoli pre-started plants available at local nurseries but this year do not see any. We liked this variety since it produces lots of side shoots. It may be too late for this year to grow from seeds but what pre-started varieties could I select which has the same side shoot production as Packman.
