Extra Early Brassicas Collection x32 Plants & FREE Collars
- Caulis and cabbages for the whole summer
- Ready from plot to plate in around 10 weeks
- National Vegetable Society and Royal Horticultural Society approved
We’ve stolen a march on Mother Nature just for you by giving you cabbage plants in March that we’ve sown in autumn and overwintered to go into the ground in your garden from March. They’ll be ready in 8-10 weeks for harvesting for the kitchen for tasty spring and summer dishes.
Our Extra Early Brassica Collection includes:
- 8x Broccoli (Calabrese) Marathon Plants - Produces dense blue-green, finely beaded succulent heads from May.
- 8x Cabbage Duncan Plants - One of the best spring cabbages, producing firm, pointed heads in May but can be picked before maturity and eaten as 'spring greens' in April.
- 8x Cauliflower Maybach Plants - An excellent, early maturing variety that will not 'blow' in warm weather.
- 8x Brussels Sprout Clodius Plants - Dependable solid, round sprouts ready in time for the Christmas period and continuing for the remainder of winter when other green vegetables are scarce.
- 30x Brassica Collars - A simple solution to stop the cabbage root fly, a notorious allotment pest that can cause serious damage to your brassica crops.
The plants may not look as fresh as spring-sown plants on arrival BUT these recover quickly. The plants will be taller and have some yellow leaves which will either fall off or green up as the plant gets growing.
These plants should give you harvests from May – and the great thing is that you’ll have collected your cabbage and cauliflowers before persistent brassica pests like cabbage white butterflies and whiteflies make an appearance.
We suggest you prepare your planting bed by digging over and adding some pre-planting fertiliser to get your soil plant-ready. Brassicas like cabbages and cauliflowers like firm soil so pat the soil down around every plant at planting time.See Full Description +
