Planting And Care:

  • Make sure that the plants have uninterrupted growth to avoid the plants to develop the head prematurely or ruin the edible part completely
  • Cauliflower requires consistent soil moisture with normal rainfall, this usually requires supplement watering
  • For best growth, side-dress the plants with a nitrogen fertilizer
  • When the white head is about 2 to 3 inches in diameter, tie the outer leaves together over the head with a rubber band, tape, or twine
  • This is called blanching, and it protects the head from the sun and helps you get that pretty white color
  • The plants are usually ready for harvest 7 to 12 days after blanching

Cauliflower Care:

  • Most cauliflower varieties require about 2 months to mature, although some are a little quicker and others can take up to 3 months
  • Since they will not form heads in warm weather and can only handle a light frost, be sure to choose a variety that will have enough time to mature in your climate
  • That means a fast maturing variety if your spring or fall is short
  • Longer maturing varieties are good choices for gardeners with mild or late winters
