For a tasty compact cauli take a look at this variety.  Summer sown Bola de Nieve will grow quickly for harvesting in October/November.  Enjoy tight snowy-white heads up to 15cm diameter, weighing in at about a kilo.  They are happy growing on most soils and a good choice for smaller spaces too.  Price for 18 seeds

SOW: in June and July for harvesting in October & November.  We start all our cauliflowers in pots or modules, seed 15mm deep, as this helps them develop a good root system.  Transplant after about 5/6 weeks.

GROW: these like a deeply dug soil, space them 30-40cm apart and firm them in well. All cauliflowers like a fertile soil but fresh manure will make them grow leaves not curds!  Regular watering is essential; cauliflowers do not like to get dry.  Cut the curds when they are tight and firm – don’t leave them on the plant too long.

EAT: enjoy the tight curds fresh or you can freeze your harvest.  To Freeze – separate into even sized florets, blanch for 3 minutes, plunge into cold water, drain and pack into portions.
