Planting & Care

Soil and Water: Cauliflower prefers nearly neutral soils rich in organic matter. Water moderately and evenly. Cauliflower can be sensitive to boron deficiencies. Lime the soil to a pH of 7.0 or higher in areas with clubroot problems.

Planting and Growing: To ensure plump heads, time indoor sowing so that plants are no more than 5 weeks old at transplant time. Sow outdoors when soil temperatures are at least 60°F. While cauliflower requires growing conditions similar to broccoli and cabbage, it can be more difficult to grow. Any interruption in growth due to under watering or under fertilization can cause the plant to prematurely set a small, unusable head.

Harvesting and Storage: Unlike white cauliflower, do not cover the head. Cut head when smooth, before it becomes grainy.

Great expectations

I won\'t be planting these seeds until fall, but I expect they will do as well as all the other seeds I've purchased from Peaceful Valley.
