Cauli looks like cress...


Cauli seeds have individual cress in just a few this right?...can't imagine it may eventually be a cauli.

I know they are probably a bit of a specialist veg for a beginner but thought it would be a bit of fun...

    Sounds OK to me.image

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • Guess - in a propagator - too warm.

    no a bedroom...should I put them in a N facing conservatory?...thought it would be too cold.

    I have some teeny-weeny plug plants (perennials) can I put them in there too? they are growing quickly too...

    cress is a brassica, so cauliflower, cabbage, sprout, calabrase and broccoli all look like cress at the start! image

    I planted my seeds out about a month ago. Was that a bad idea, I notice you have planted yours inside.

    None of my have come up yet.

    it sounds a bit early for planting brassica seeds outdoors, if they're not showing now, they probably wont now,

    I'd sow them again inside in module trays and grow on until you've got four or more true leaves, then harden off for a couple of days before planting

    Outside: just you wait until we have a drop of rain, then everything will pop up. Rain usually does it better than watering the ground.

    Cauli now in the conservatory...still like cress with 2 leaves, so watching and waiting for 4 leaves then will follow treehugger80 instructions above.


    thanks all..
