Cauliflower will not grow well where temperatures average above 75 F or where winter temperatures drop below 25 F. Poor cauliflower is usually a result of improper planting time, low moisture or low fertility. Plant your seeds indoors, 5 to 7 weeks before setting outside. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, and fall planting done around July or August. Plants can grow 12" tall.

Requires fertile soil with compost and some lime. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water regularly to keep soil cool and moist. Keep watered during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Cut heads below the inner leaves when the heads or about 8" in diameter.
