Cauliflower 'Veronica F1'

Romanesco broccoli

Romanesco cauliflowers have light green, amazingly beautiful, intricately spiralled heads. The flavour is more delicate and nutty than white cauliflowers. Romanesco can only be grown to be harvested in autumn and winter. Sow seed from early December until early February.

 

When to sow: Early December until early February

Where to sow: In a seed tray, pots or garden seed bed

Depth to sow: 1/2cm Aspect: Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.

Soil: Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add lime if soil is too acid.

Spacing: Between plants 45cm Between rows 60 to 80cm

 

Directions: If grown under cover when the first two true leaves appear harden the seedlings off by taking them outside on a cool cloudy day. Keep watered. When the seedlings are 6-8cm tall plant in the garden. First remove the seed leaves (cotyledons) and plant up to the first set of true leaves. Water in. If seed is planted in outside seed beds transplant when seedlings are 6-8cm tall.
