  • My first proper cauliflower!

    After 6 years of allotting I have finally grown a proper cauli! I've only manage to grow the odd specimen smaller than the palm of my hand, someone on the plot gave me 5 seedlings on the autumn (cant remember who now) whIch I put in, covered with a cage thing (against the pigeons) and forgot all about, I glanced in today and found 4 huge white
    caulis, just eaten cauliflower cheese for tea, what a lovely surprise.

      Wow, I'm well jealous!
      I only have one cauli plant from the 9 I planted in autumn which looks anywhere like it might produce a cauliflowers, plus about 4 stragglers and the rest died.
      Hoping for better things from my spring-sown caulis.

          My first proper cauliflower!

          Congratulations! I shall always remember my first cauli. Makes ya feel kinda proud, doesn't it. For this year, I put 4 seeds into paper pots, and 3 have germinated. When I get a minute to myself I shall introduce them to the big wide world. (The end of my garden).

            Well done Pomeylottie! I've been eating some of my Nine Star Perennial caulis this week. Nice to have something from the lottie when there ain't much ready for harvesting innit!

              Brilliant. I've just been growing spring planted All the Year Round and they've done well for me.
              I'd like to try some autumn planted ones this year. Anybody recommend a good one ?

              From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

                Nice one PL, Cauliflower Cheese is lovely and probably even better when the Cauli's are yours
