CAULIFLOWER

Culture is similar to broccoli, but be careful to  not stunt or slow the growth rate of the plants down.  The more rapid they grow the better chance you  have for a decent crop. Very fertile soil and proper growing conditions  translate into a great crop,.  Do not stunt the transplants and let them”button  up”  or your yield will be dismal. Cauliflower here in Iowa is a challenging crop. You need to have the transplants at a nice 4  inch size when the  weather is just right, no more hard freezes and yet not so late that it is getting in the 90's. (Approximately 500 seeds/pkt.) UPDATED FOR 2021
