The life and times of Cauliflower, 'Violet Sicilian' and Broccoli, 'Romanesco'. Last Friday

Click mouse over photo for larger photo and better detail.

Last Friday I did a little prep work for planting my Broccoli, 'Romanesco' and Cauliflower, 'Violet Sicilian'.

Being not entirely happy with their progress in the potting mix I decided it was bath time for these little baby's.
Just a half strength fish and seeweed mixture and a soak for and hour or two.

Talk about spoilt, I usually only give a half a bucket of compost, but these guys will get a whole bucket each.

Never heard of a plant that died from too much compost. Just ask the runaway pumpkin growing out of the compost pile.

Rooster Booster praise. Even the bag is bio degradable.

A half a hand full per sq mtr should do it.

Just need some dolomite to help curb club root.

A half a hand full again.

Ready to turn in.

All turned in watered and ready for planting.

How do think they will go?

Brilliantly I hope. I am a couple of weeks behind you so I will follow your example when mine are ready to plant out. Great work. x deb

Hi, thanks Deb.

Hi Stewart, any of the brand names mentioned are unknowns here. What does Dolomite consist of, clubroot is something I have heard of and as I will be planting out brassicas anything I can add would be welcome.
