Vegetable Seeds - Cauliflowers

Cauliflowers are not the easiest of brassicas to grow but I think they are probably the most satisfying. A beautifully formed cauliflower with tight curds is wonderful to see and producing it is a very satisfying. As well as white varieties you can get yellow and purple ones.

There are three types of cauliflower; summer, autumn and winter varieties. Summer varieties can be sown in the cold frame in September, indoors in January or outdoors in April and some varieties may be harvested in June or July while other outdoor sown varieties will be ready during August For help in growing cauliflowers check out our guide here: Grow Your Own Cauliflowers

Cauliflower : Clapton F1 Hybrid

The first cauliflower with Club Root resistance. Clapton is a versatile late summer to late autumn maturing variety, depending on its sowing time. It has taken over 18 years of conventional breeding to develop a variety that can combat the devastating brassica disease Club Root and this superb variety is the most resistant we have ever grown on our trials.
