How To Grow Cauliflower
-------------------- Sponsored Links --------------------


Cauliflower is one of those vegetables, that I like to cook with my famous potato stew. Last year, I decided to grow some cauliflower for the first time, which surprisingly did very well.

A few of the plants were affected by the late frost, I have since found out that cauliflower does not like the frost or sizzling summer heat. So this year, will start them a little later in the spring.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

The cauliflower seeds can be started indoors an inch deep around a month before the last frost or directly outdoors in areas that have longer growing seasons. Find an area that gets a lot of sunlight, a little shade but not too much is ok too.

The ideal soil pH for growing your cauliflower should be between 6.5 to 7.5. When planting space them a minimum of 16 inches apart, this will help fight any root diseases. Do not over water your cauliflower. Apply your compost teas and fish emulsions for fertilizer.

Cauliflower has to be blanched, even if you grow varieties that self blanch. This process involves covering the head of the plant to limit its exposure to the sun. You simply use the leaves of the plant to do this once the head has grown to at least two inches.
