Broccoli 'Purple Sprouting' normally reaches to a mature height of 2.44 feet [imperial: 75.0 cm] so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden has full sun light - try to position in a partial sun location instead.

Your garden has clay soil: try to position in a loam soil for the best result.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (8a) is within the ideal range for Broccoli 'Purple Sprouting'. The recommended range is between Zone 7 and 10.

A soil ph of between 6.2 and 7.2 is ideal for Broccoli 'Purple Sprouting' as it does best in acidic to alkaline soil so test your soil acidity often.
