Aalsmeer is an early vigorous variety with excellent curds that are well protected. It produces creamy white heads of good depth and weight and is a good variety for being frost hardy, so will grow in all regions of the UK.

WHEN TO SOW

May to June

Where to Sow

Sowings can be made in trays or modules under glass at 13°C. Later sowings can be made into a seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (3/4") deep in short rows.

What to do Next

As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves, prick off into trays 5cm (2") apart or thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out, spacing plants 45cm (18in) apart between plants and 60cm (24in) between the rows. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 7-10cm (3-4in) apart , then once plants are 15cm (6in) tall , they can be lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions, spaced the same as detailed above.

MATURITY

April to May the following year

HANDY TIP

Cauliflowers dislike any check in growth. Lack of water can cause premature formation of small button heads. Water regularly.

NUTRITIONAL VALUES

A good source of iron, manganese, and folic acid. Contains many healthy antioxidants.
