See cabbage. Cauliflower prefers a well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, a pH of 6.0-7.5 with a consistent supply of moisture throughout the growing season. Irrigate regularly for best results. Cauliflower does not do well in hot weather; the best success is with spring and fall crops.
Sow in 1-1 1/2" cell-type trays or peat pots from early March through June. If possible, keep soil at least 70Â°F (21Â°C) until germination, and 60Â°F (16Â°C) thereafter. Transplant outdoors when seedlings are no older than 4-5 weeks old. Older plants tend to be stressed and do not perform as well as actively growing seedlings. For early spring planting, harden plants carefully by gradually increasing cold before transplanting out, 18" between plants and 24-36" between rows.
