Problems with Cauliflowers!

Well. I've sown all my early brassicas, all in the same seed compost and in the same climate (in the greenhouse) . Broccoli, sprouts, cabbage all doing well, even potted some up. But Cauliflower 'Snowball' a disaster! few germinated, even fewer survived?, none showing second leaves yet.  Any thoughts welcome.

    They are a bit sensitive to temperature.  I raised some brassica seedlings and transplanted them, but they didn't like the centrally heated part of the house, they didn't like the place where the heating isn't turned on, they didn't like it outside.  I will try again when I've got the greenhouse up and running, but I did some reading and realised that I might be luckier later.  Try planting some more, a few at a time, that's what I'm going to do.
