An adaptable cauliflower variety that, in mild areas, can be grown to produce pure white heads all year round.
How to Sow:
Choose a well-drained site in full sun. Sow these seeds in trays for subsequent transplanting or, after frosts, sow directly in a well prepared seedbed. Sow seeds 3 cm apart, in groups 50 cm apart and to a depth of 1 cm.
Keep the seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 7-14 days. Apply fruit fertiliser two weeks after germination for healthier plants and maximum crop. Protect your seedlings from slugs, snails and insect pests; go to mcgregors.co.nz for appropriate plant health and pest control products.
Hints and Tips:
Harvest cauliflower heads when they are full, but before the sections begin to loosen. In cooler climates you should sow in autumn for your winter harvests. This allows the plants time to get established before the onset of winter.
