Bought ramanesco....

23 December 2018
I bought ramanesco seeds, planted them and have just harvested my first purple cauliflower. (I have no purple cauliflower seeds.) I think there was a mix up with the seed packets/labeling. A bit disappointed that the seeds weren’t what I was expecting however, I love cauliflower! So it was still a nice surprise and fun watching the heads grow!

These did not germinate

By: on 23 March 2016
I tried everything to try and get these seeds to germinate. Paper towel method, sowed them in peat moss, in jiffy pellets and straight into the soil - none of them have worked to date. it's been 3 months.
