Miniature cauliflower

Rooftop gardening
February 22, 2013

I'm always looking for something new to grow, and this fall I bought some snowball cauliflower seeds, suitable for the production miniature harvests.

Mini cauliflowerThe mini cauliflowers are gorgeus, they would be perfect for the miniatures lunch I had last year.

In the pots mini cauliflower grows to a size of 5-6 cm, then its growth stops, but the Snowball cauliflower on earth usually grows up to 15 cm.


Mini turnipThis autumn I've grown another miniature plant, mini turnips, curiously a variety of the same name (snowball).
Maybe the weather was too dry, but this plant disappointed me, turnips didn't grow and were small and elongated.
