Cauliflower is gaining popularity in our health conscious society being used as a replacement for higher carbohydrate vegetables. It is a cool weather crop. The seeds may be direct sown for a fall crop but do much better for a spring crop started indoors in seedling trays 4-6 weeks prior to the last frost date. A week or two prior to planting outside harden off the seedlings off by putting them outside in increasing intervals to adjust them to outside temperatures and natural sunlight.

Cauliflower, like their close relatives, broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts are heavy feeders so the soil should be amended with compost a week or two before you start hardening off the seedlings. Most of the problems cauliflower has are with soil borne diseases. To avoid these, rotate cole crops (cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and broccoli) every three years with vegetables like peas and beans which will add nutrients to the soil. When the button or curd is the size of an egg pull the side leaves up around the head to blanch it, making sure that neither the leaves nor the head is wet. Some newer varieties such as Snowball Y Improved are self-blanching which means that the leaves will curl up around the head eliminating the need to pull the leaves up manually.
