No-one could have been more suprised than me when I found we have grown some lovely caulis.
I tried them once years ago and got precisely nothing (except leaves), and having read of the difficulty people have in getting good results I gave up. I like cauliflower, but not that much.
The secret(s) of my success are as follows:-
Accept seedlings from neighbour out of politeness
Leave them in the sunniest place in the garden and neglect them for at least three months. Do not pot on, feed, or water adequately.
Wait until most of the leaves have yellowed and dropped off.
Before being totally overcome with guilt, shove them in the allotment, cover with fleece and expect them to die.
Harvest in the New Year, lovely big caulis, no caterpillars, yum.
How lucky was I? Much helped by the mild weather of course. I don' think it will ever happen again!
Anyone else grown anything really well through all the wrong methods?
