The answer to thousands of gardeners' prayers! After over 18 years of conventional breeding against this devastating brassica disease, we are pleased to offer four of the most clubroot-resistant varieties ever grown in T&M trials.
This collection comprises:
Broccoli Monclano F1 - This hardy variety has been selected for top flavour, heavy yields and resistance to clubroot and mildew.
Brussels Sprout Crispus F1 Hybrid - (Autumn-winter) Sow this latest clubroot resistant hybrid variety in the spring for an autumn harvest.
Cabbage Kilaton F1 Hybrid - Kilaton has a very high level of clubroot resistance producing quality autumn ballheads with a solid, dense structure weighing up to 2kgs (4.4lb).
Cauliflower Clapton F1 Hybrid - The first-ever cauliflower to be bred with clubroot resistance! Clapton is a versatile late-summer to late-autumn variety depending on sowing time.
Sow brassica seed indoors from mid February to April, or direct sow outdoors from late April to July into a well prepared seedbed at a depth of 13mm (½in) deep for transplanting to their final positions later on around 5 weeks later.< br>
Indoors, sow seed at a depth of 6mm ((¼") in 7.5cm (3") pots or trays of free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 10-21C (50-70F) until germination which takes 7-10 days. Once germinated, grow brassicas on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and brassica plants are large enough to be transplanted. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting brassicas outdoors in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the soil in advance in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant brassicas at a distance of 60cm (24") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
