Don't be too impatient re the Cauli & Broccoli florets: It will depend on the variety but many sown in spring/early summer one year will not mature until spring next year. In my early days a friend gave me some white flowering broc. plants called 'Nine Star Wonder' by the autmn nothing had showed re florets so I pulled them all out & binned them. Told my friend they were a waste of time & space & he laughed - Why, didn't you realise, he said, they don't mature until April next year, you could have had a brilliant crop! Needless to say I felt a right fool at the time.
Maybe I should have put this response on "The daftest thing you've ever done in the garden" thread. It's certainly up there with the winning contenders!
