Q.cold temperature broccoli can take
We have broccoli growing in our winter garden for the first time. How cold can broccoli take it? We have covers and insulation and can do what’s necessary but I don’t want to do more than is necessary since it shares a bed with kale, parsley, and spinach. The lettuces and Chinese cabbage are in other beds and we try to protect them from below 25 degrees (also mesclun mixes), although I think they could take it a little colder. I don’t want to stress any of the plants. Thank you.

This hardy plant can typically take cold temps from 20-25 F, so you can pretty much care for it as you would your other winter crops if it falls below this--cold frames/tunnels and mulching.
