Our Feedback
Hello Victoriana Team, I received my order in first class condition and the lavender is nicely planted now. Steve (My husband) is going to use the mustard on the allotment over the weekend. I just had to let you know that we are as pleased as punch with your company and with the goods that we have ordered. It is so nice to congratulate a company that works so hard to please everyone. Many thanks again for the splendid service - Keep up the good work.

Though strictly speaking described as an early cauliflower, Snowball is in fact far more versatile than that and can be used for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter production.

First bred in America in the 1890's there probably still isn't a better cauliflower to grow in the garden.

The compact plants produce a good crop of 5" - 6" (13 - 15 cm) pure white cauliflower heads that are tightly packed to the point of being solid and of superb quality - they freeze well too!

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).

  • For Early Cropping
  • Sow under protection in trays February to March.
  • Set out when large enough, and fully hardened off, 18" (45 cm) apart in rows 2 feet (60 cm) apart.
  • Harvest approximately June - September.
  • For Main Cropping
  • Sow from March to May thinly in rows 6" (15 cm) apart. Sow in ½" (1 cm) deep drills.
  • Thin to one seedling per 3" (7.5 cm) or transplant into suitable pots.
  • Set out when large enough to handle 18" (45 cm) apart in rows 2 feet (60 cm) apart.
  • Harvest approximately August - October.
  • For Winter Cropping
  • Sow May to June thinly in rows 6" (15 cm) apart. Sow in ½" (1 cm) deep drills.
  • Thin to one seedling per 3" (7.5 cm) or transplant into suitable pots.
  • Set out when large enough to handle 18" (45 cm) apart in rows 2 feet (60 cm) apart.
  • Harvest approximately December - March.
  • For Over-Wintering
  • Sow August to September thinly in rows 6" (15 cm) apart. Sow in ½" (1 cm) deep drills.
  • Thin to one seedling per 3" (7.5 cm) or transplant into suitable pots.
  • Set out when large enough 18" (45 cm) apart in rows 2 feet (60 cm) apart under protection- greenhouse, polytunnel or cloche.
  • Harvest approximately May - June.
  • Top Tips
  • Bend leaves over the developing head to protect from Sun during the Summer and frost in the Winter.
  • Do not overfeed winter crops as this makes them more susceptible to frost damage.
  • Protect from Pigeons - Pigeons love Brassicas (so do Partridges).
  • 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.
