Our Feedback
Thank you for my order which was received today. I would like to congratulate you on both the speedy and efficient way in which my order was dealt with and the quality and excellent value for money in respect of the live plants ordered (tree lupins). Over the last 30 years or so I have ordered plants from a large number of plant suppliers. However, none come anywhere near the quality of your plants in terms of their healthiness, robustness and readiness for planting-on. Many thanks

A perennial cauliflower which produces approximately ten or more tennis ball-sized custard yellow heads per year (one customer grew 39 heads on one plant in one year - is this a record?).

Excellent flavour and easy to grow year after year! Please note that these plants do get larger than ordinary cauliflower plants. The bigger the plants get the more cauliflowers they will produce!

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects if allowed to 'go over' and flower (so if you have room leave any plants in that have gone too far rather than pulling them out straight away).

  • Can be planted out any time of year unless the ground is frozen.
  • Frost hardy.
  • Plant 3 feet (90 cm) apart.
  • Prefer a rich soil.
  • Produce creamy yellow cauliflowers.
  • It is recommended that they are replaced after approximately five years.
  • Principal cropping season is early spring.
  • Extra cauliflowers can be frozen.
  • Leaves can be shredded and used in coleslaw or stir fried.
  • Can take up to 10 months before they produce fully rounded caulis - the 'sprouting' they produce meantime can of course be eaten!
  • Trim back plants a little after cropping with shears to encourage new growth once they start getting huge! (i.e. cut off about 18" (45 cm) of foliage).
  • To suppress weed growth and to encourage good root growth mulch with good organic compost.

  • Top Tips
  • Protect from Pigeons - Pigeons love Brassicas (so do Partridges).
  • Do not overfeed winter crops as this makes them more susceptible to frost damage.
  • Take precautions against the dreaded Cabbage White Butterfly - inspect your crop regularly, spray with our BioFriend Plant Defence regularly or use a physical barrier such as insect netting.
