Igloo Cauliflower is an early variety with good, clean, white heads. Specially bred for close planting to produce mini-cauliflowers or at wider spacing for larger heads.
WHEN TO SOW
February to May
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 for large curds. 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 November
For mini Cauliflowers, plant at 30cm (12") apart and 30cm (12") between rows.
