Cauliflower Cauliflowers are packed with vitamins and nutrients, so when choosing what varieties to grow, you'll base your decision mostly on size and color.

It is the technique of covering a plant or plant part to prevent the development of color. To prevent this and promote better head quality in hot weather, follow these tips on blanching: At the moment when small white heads are just visible through leaves, gather the outer leaves over the head and tie with string or large rubber band. Another method is to crack the leaves mid-season and fold them over until covered. Do not break the leaves completely or they may blow away • Practice blanching only when necessary as this practice could increase humidity and lead to a higher chance of crops contracting Alternaria Do not practice with varieties that require sunlight to achieve full color Be mindful that there are self blanching cauliflower varieties as well Growing Information Cauliflower varieties are generally bred for cool or mild weather conditions. Our research is aimed at identifying flavorful, easy-to-grow varieties that perform well even in stressful conditions. Early Spring Crop- Use early and mid-season varieties. Seedlings should be ready to transplant in 4-6 weeks after sowing. Transplant outside no later than 4-5 weeks old, as older plants tend to get stressed and do not perform as well. Harden plants carefully by gradually increasing the cold temperature. Fall Crop- Use mid-season and storage varieties. Start seedlings in May and transplant to the garden in June- July. Seedlings should be ready to transplant in 4-6 weeks after sowing. Winter Crop- Successful planting can be grown where winters are mild and temeratures rarely reach below 32°F. Transplants can be set out from September to February. For Direct Seeding- Sow 3-4 seeds 18" apart, rows 24-36" apart. Thinning to one plant in each group. Germination And Growing Tips by David Placing your seeds in less than 1/4 inch of soil will do. It is important to know how deep you should plant your seeds. Seeds are a living embryo that contains enough energy to germinate and break the surface of the soil. If planted too deep, the seeds will run out of energy and die before they break the surface. We recommend planting your seeds 1/4 inch in the soil. Keep your soil moist, but not wet. Over-watering will drown the seed. A good rule to follow is moist soil will have a dark healthy look to it. It will feel like brown sugar on your knuckle. Dry soil will be dull, flaky, and feel like salt. The best watering for germinating is from the bottom. Placing your starter plants in a tray, and filling with 3/4 water, allows them to soak up the water they need. Seeds need enough light to grow. Most seeds need 14 to 16 hours of daylight a day, so if you are planting indoors, a grow light will be needed. A regular florescent or lamp light will not work. Placing your pots on a window sill will not work with most seeds since they do not get the full amount of light. If your seeds are not getting enough light they will grow tall, thin, and then fall over. At David's Garden Seeds, we carry over 2,000 varieties of seeds, in stock, every day.
