Presenting to you for the first time, from the mild temperate climes of suburban Toowoomba, Cauliflower, 'Violet Sicilian', and Broccoli ,'Romanesco'.
I've grown Caulies and Brocs before but not these varieties, but I've had Cosmic Garden give them the big thumbs up
As you can see in the photo it all started on the 8th of Feb 2009.
I planted them in 50mm tubestock pots using a local organic potting mix.
I find this (local organic potting mix)
a little low in nutrients therefore I'll also be watering them weekly with a half strength fish emulsion solution.
Soil preparation has already begun with lime, copious amounts of compost and fresh stable horse manure being added and turned into the soil. We've just had 25mm of rain on this so it should turn up really nice come planting time in 3 or 4 weeks time.
I'll be back out this coming Monday to record their progress.
