    Hi,

    maybe I am expecting to much to quickly, however I planted cauliflowers and broccolli in January. The problem is that the broccolli heads are small, more like side shoot size rather than main head size and the cauliflowers at this stage have no hearts. Has anyone got any ideas on what is wrong? I suspect it may have been too hot or that the beds may have had too much fertiliser. :uhoh:

    Thanks Susan 🙂

    I’ve got a cauliflower which was planted in November and has only recently developed a nice curd.

    To hot which they dont like. Its best to sow / plant in spring.

    Caulies are long growers too, so can take time to head up!

    Cauliflowers take a long time to grow.

    When the white flower heads come, you can use a clothes peg to hold the leaves over the top to keep them white.

    Thanks to all :hug: I shall keep on keeping on and let them go for a while longer. LOL maybe I am just getting greedy for some, they were nearly $5.00 each at the market today 🙁

    Cheers Susan
