Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Cauliflower Graffiti F1 produces dense, rich deep purple curds that are not only unusual but full of flavour. The heads reach a good size - about 16cm in diameter and they look stunning in the garden or on a dinner plate.
Cauliflower Graffiti heads make unusual deep purple raw cruditíes, especially when mixed with lime-green Cauliflower Romanesco and pure white Cauliflower All Year Round. A talking point at the dinner table. They can also be cooked like white cauliflowers but the colour keeps better if the florets are steamed rather than boiled. A little lemon juice in the water can also reduce the bleeding too! It is usual to cover the heads of white cauliflowers with their own leaves to prevent the curds from yellowing with the sun but this purple one benefits from sunlight exposure making the curds a deeper purple.
A healthy purple veg full of antioxidants! Imagine a row of Lime-Green / Purple / White cauliflowers in the veg patch stunning!
Catch crops can also be sown under cauliflowers to help increase the productivity of the patch such as radishes, lettuce or salad leaves. Or you could alternate your plantings with companion plants such as onions or garlic to confuse pests.
Cauliflower Graffiti F1 Vegetable Seed Information
|Seed Quantity:||Approx 15 seeds per pack.|
Full sun, fertile, firm soil that is moisture retentive.
|When to Sow:||Indoors: March-April. Outdoors: April-May.|
|How to Sow:||Sow in modules/cells 1cm deep & water carefully. Germination usually takes 7-10 days. When 7-10cm tall - usually 5-6 weeks after sowing, transplant out after 'hardening off' for 3-4 days. Space plants 60cm apart, in rows 60cm apart. Soil must be firm, so tread down soil well after planting. Seeds can also be sown outdoors in a well-prepared seedbed from April to May, and the seedlings transplanted to their final position 6 weeks later.|
Keep well watered as water shortage can lead to cauliflowers bolting & weed free. Keep an eye out for pests such as slugs/snails, pigeons and diseases like clubroot.
