Cauliflower Snowball (Award of Garden Merit)
Cauliflower seeds - Snowball (Award of Garden Merit).
Snowball Cauliflower is a highly suitable variety for the home garden. It is a regular favourite that has stood the test of time. It produces dwarf compact plants which can be set closer than others.
Cauliflower, not being one of the easiest of vegetables to grow is certainly regarded by many old hands as the test of a real gardener. But with good planning, regular care and a small dose of common sense, you can pretty much have cauliflower on the table all year round.

When to sow
When to Sow Snowball Cauliflower Seeds
February to April
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.
July to August.
Cauliflowers dislike any check in growth. Lack of water can cause premature formation of small heads. Water regularly and feed as heads start to form to ensure perfect curds.
A good source of iron, manganese and anti-oxidants.
