About Cauliflower (All Year Round)

Cauliflowers are a European vegetable with a compact creamy white head wrapped in green leaves. Try this vegetable in your cottage garden or medium-sized vegetable patch. (Sorry, caulis aren't suitable for pots or apartments.)

The All Year Round variety is a hardy addition to the garden.  Relatively heat and cold tolerant, it produces medium-sized white heads that hold their shape, even when over-ripe.

Culinary Uses for Cauliflower

Cauliflower are traditionally found in European or Middle Eastern cuisine - think hearty winter warmers like Cauliflower cheese or roasted Cauli with tahini and spices, or in a vegetarian curry.  We love Cauliflower puree - steam gently in milk, then add butter, mustard, salt, pepper and blitz.  

Growing Conditions - Cauliflower 

 Cauliflower need a little tender love and care - perfect white Caulis are the mark of a real gardener! Plant in early spring or autumn, choosing a sunny spot with rich, free draining soil.  Marigolds, Peas, Rosemary, Sage, Thyme and Onions are good companion plants, but avoid planting near Tomatoes.   Although the All Year Round variety is more tolerant of warmth than other types, we don't recommend transplanting Cauli seedlings in the heat of summer as this can cause them to bolt.

While it doesn't like sitting in soggy soil, Cauliflower does need consistently moist soil, so don't let it dry out.  This plant is also hungry, so remember to feed it regularly through the growing season. Once established, this vegetable can handle a windy spot, or a frost.  As the heads develop, fold the leaves over to prevent discolouration.  Protect from slugs, snails and cabbage butterflies.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

      If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

      If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.

      Do you deliver to post office boxes?
