This collection of extra early brassicas could see you harvesting delicious broccoli, cabbage and caulis from as early as late May/June! We will sow seed this autumn, carefully grow and nurture the plants through the winter months, in a cool greenhouse, and then despatch fully hardened off, strong and sturdy plants to you in mid-March ready for immediate planting – around 8 weeks earlier than our normal brassica despatch period.
The collection consists of 30 plants, 10 of each variety:
Calabrese Aquiles F1 - Can be over-wintered if desired for an extra early crop. It can also be planted closer together than many others. Once the central head is cut, delicious smaller side shoots are produced. Highly resistant to foliar downy mildew.
Cabbage Regency F1 - A delicious pointed cabbage producing very uniform and compact hearts, with a strong base, and keeps well on the plot. Harvest from June.
Cauliflower Seoul F1 - A productive summer and autumn variety with a vigorous root system that ensures plants perform well under any stressed conditions. Produces very white, very dense curds of a very good flavour. Highly recommended for the showbench.
