Tough growing conditions for the field grown brassica transplants- heavy frost has been the norm .

The field grown seedlings are growing looking healthy and completely acclimatised to colder conditions and drier weather. We rule out even watering them at any time through the growing season and they will withstand variable conditions so much better. Expect them to be ready for market from mid to end of May onwards.

We have had several heavy frosts in the Highwood area of Liskeard Cornwall, which has resulted in some very cold nights.

The seedlings for the future field grown transplants receive no special treatment or protection from such severe conditions.

Interestingly Old Westcountry folklore about Franklins Night says that we have to wait till about 21st May before the last of any harmful frost are over.
