Growing Calendar for Brassica Extra Early Collection x 32 plants
Delivery: Mid March to Late March
Extra Early Brassica Plants are a great way to give you some of the earliest crops of brussels, cabbage, calabrese and cauliflower - plant them this March and you could be harvesting from May – just two months after for an extra quick turn-around.
Extra Early Brassica Collection includes 8 plants each of:
We’ve already sown the seeds in autumn, gently growing the plants on over the winter under controlled, cool greenhouse conditions to produce sturdy young plants that are ready to despatch and plant out in mid/late March, some 8-10 weeks earlier than the main brassica planting period.
The Extra Early Brassicas have been sown in October and overwintered undercover with frost protection. The plants are tough, sturdy and stocky ready hardened off for immediate planting on arrival.
The plants will not look as fresh as spring sown plants BUT don’t be alarmed! The plants will be taller and have some yellow leaves which will either fall off or green up as the plant gets growing. The plants are typical of those planted by commercial growers up and down the country and will thrive in prepared soil.
These plants will crop 6-8 weeks earlier in your garden than spring raised crops and give you good harvest from your garden as early as May so you can harvest them before persistent brassica pests are around like cabbage white caterpillar and whitefly.
We recommend you water your bed before planting and put the plant in backfilling and firming the soil lightly around the plant.
