Last year, just about all my cauliflowers got nibbled by something or simply perished. This year, on the other hand, I made sure I started them off early and put them in the ground when they were already robust seedlings.
In part of the bed, I made a trench, which I filled with wood and manure. And guess which of the cauliflowers have really taken off?
The two in the photo above have got so big the net cloche protecting them from the cabbage whites will have to come off. Going on the luck I’ve had with the cabbages being seemingly protected by buckwheat and/or nasturtiums, I hope the cauliflowers will be okay. In any case, I think they should be strong enough to withstand any unwanted interest…..
