We've stolen a march on Mother Nature by sowing seed of three specially selected varieties and then gently growing the plants on over the winter under controlled cool greenhouse conditions.

These sturdy young plants are ready to send to you and plant out in mid/late March, some eight to 10 weeks earlier than the main brassica planting period. To encourage the earliest possible crops we recommend that you protect your young plants with fleece or cloches.

You'll SAVE £5 compared to if you were to buy the collections individually!

Our Extra Early Brassica Collection includes 16 plants each of:

 16 x Cauliflower Mayflower plants - Mayflower cuts from mid May to early June. The vigorous plants produce delicious, tender, medium to large heads which are pure-white with no pinking. A great choice for the home gardener.

16 x Broccoli (Calabrese) Marathon -Good for freezing. A superb variety that will reliably produce a good crop of delicious, dense blue-green, finely beaded succulent heads from May to June no matter what the weather!

16 x Cabbage Duncan - Cabbage Duncan A ‘pointed' variety that is extremely versatile - harvest very early as leafy greens allow to heart up for cutting from May to June.

The Extra Early Brassicas have been sown in October and overwintered undercover with frost protection. The plants are tough, sturdy and stocky ready hardened off for immediate planting on arrival. 

The plants will not look as fresh as spring sown plants BUT don’t be alarmed! The plants will be taller and have some yellow leaves which will either fall off or green up as the plant gets growing. The plants are typical  of those planted by commercial growers up and down the country and will thrive in prepared soil. 

These plants will crop six to eight weeks earlier in your garden than spring raised crops and give your first flush of produce from your garden – and what’s more many will have cropped before persistent brassica pests are around like caterpillars and whitefly.
