Cauliflower Seeds

Cauliflowers are an enormously popular vegetable, but not always the easiest to grow from seed. Success means you have arrived as a gardener! If you are new to cauliflower growing, try raising one of the more expensive hybrid varieties in plug packs and then planting them out. Top Tip: Bend a leaf over the developing cauliflower head in summer to prevent scorch from the sun and in winter to protect against frost damage.

Why choose to grow your own Cauliflower Seeds?

Cauliflowers are a regular visitor to our vegetable gardens and sits in the family of Brassica with Broccoli and Cabbage too. Cauliflower is a versatile cooking ingredient, enjoy roasted, boiled or made into a rice alternative. They are rich in nutrients and packed full of vitamins, particularly a good source of fibre. 

Dobies has a range of Cauliflower varieties on offer, choose a classic white head like ‘Snowball’, or try something different with a purple head like ‘Di Sicilia Violetto’. However, if you’re after an entirely new look in your plot, emerging as a popular variety the spiky ‘Romanesco’ has a large pyramid-shaped head with an apple green colour.

How to grow Cauliflowers from seed

Looking after your Cauliflowers:

Caterpillars and pigeons are some of the pests which will try to sabotage your crops. Keep an eye out or use a decent net or cage for additional protection and precaution. Alternatively, scarecrow will work too, and the build is a great family activity down the allotment. 

It’s good to pick over any dead or yellowing leaves. Timing of harvest is important, keep a close eye and before Florets start to uncurl use a sharp knife to cut through the stem below the flower.
