Hello, I am having a problem getting Cauliflower to grow from seed. I can get them to germinate and grow to small plants but then they seem to fail to thrive. I have them in my green house hoping to eventually transplant them onto my allotment. Is it too warm in there for them? Should they be grown on from seedling stage outdoors?

at this stage you can sow both summer and autumn types outside either in seed beds or in rows for thinning out. protect them from slugs and pigeons. thin out or transplant when they reach the 2-3 rough leaf stage. Autumn types are easier bigger and hardier.
