Super Extra Early variety- We've done the hard work and have overwintered these late autumn-sown brassicas to give you the earliest crop next spring. This super Extra-Early variety are exactly what farmers plant directly into the fields and are bigger, more established and tougher plants than our standard extra early varieties meaning these will crop 2-3 weeks earlier.

You receive 6 tough and well-established plugs plants at around 15-20cm (6-8in) from root to tip.

Remove plugs from the blister pack which created a greenhouse-like environment for the plants during transit, and outer packaging and water the root balls well.

The root ball should be surrounded by a good network of roots which have been established over winter and so ready to support lots or stems and flower.

Plant directly in soil from March spacing plants 45cm (18in) apart and water well mornings or evenings, or both mornings and evenings during periods of drought.

Six plants will fit comfortably in a 90cm x 90cm (3 x3 ft) area on your vegetable plot.
