Everlasting Cauliflowers!

I know I said I'd had the last of the mail-order plants for this year...

I know I said I wasn't going to grow brassicas this year as they're too much hassle...

I know I said I wouldn't even think about growing cauliflowers until I'd had some success with broccoli...

I know there's no space for anything else on the plot...

But Victoriana Nursery went and sent me a catalogue with my herb order, and I went and read it, and look what arrived in the post this morning:

I am unspeakably excited!

Has anyone else grown these before?

I grew some when I first got my plot in 2007, they never produced any florets for me, so I dug mine up last year. Not sure why or what I did/didn't do though.
Hope you'll have better luck than me *smiles*

They sound very like 9 Star, which is a perennial broccolus with cabbage-like heads. If so, it should be well worth growing as long as you can keep the pigeons off it.
