~ Seed for CAULIFLOWER ~
But when to sow them?
Special Spring Mix
To fix this we have made this mix of three different spring varieties to give a longer harvesting period and avoid a glut.
This packet contains a mix of the ever-popular “Tardif d‘Angers”, "Hatif d'Angers", and “Naples Early March” which will tend to head up at slightly different times - ideal for those who want a good supply of cauliflowers from March into April.
Sow in April/May for harvest from March onwards
Mix of three varieties for longer harvest period.

"All the Year Round" - General Purpose
- sow it repeatedly from February to May for successive harvest late Summer to Autumn. (Early sowings under cover of course)
- and then you can sow again under cover in October, so it overwinters to make heads the next Spring.
An unusually versatile variety!

"Autumn Giant" - Late Summer/Autumn
It is generally sown in spring - for harvest from the end of summer onwards into autumn.
A very reliable autumn cauliflower - can get really big!

'Ottobrino' Autumn Romanesco
Most Romanesco cauliflowers are spring maturing but we have found this smaller variety that comes ready in the autumn, thus avoiding the need to overwinter it. It should not be planted too early in spring, or it may run straight to seed.
Autumn romanesco. Green. Sow in Spring, harvest October-November.

This one matures in early autumn, usually ready in October and November.
Autumn cauliflower. Definitely pale green.

Autumn cauliflower. Purple.

Magic Mix of Cauliflowers NEW
If you’re wanting to try something a little different, then this might be just the packet.
We’ve mixed together seed of five different cauliflowers covering the whole range of colours - purple, greens, cream, white and even romanesco. Sow in spring for autumn harvest.
Colourful lucky dip. Note that although they are all spring sowing for summer/autumn harvest they will mature at different times, however this extends the harvest season to avoid a glut.
