An all year-rounder!
Cauliflowers need lots of room, doing best in very fertile soil. Achieve this by adding manure to the soil before planting. Grown all year round, ensure your cauliflowers are watered regularly, especially in summer! Firm the soil by treading on it before planting your seeds.
Plant seeds 2cm deep. Rows should be 15cm apart for mini cauliflowers or around 60cm for larger ones. Best results come if you plant the seeds in cell trays using potting compost.
Sometimes, cauliflower might produce small deformed heads. To avoid this, water the plants well the day before replanting. Make a hole deep enough to hold the plant with the lowest leaves at ground level. Fill this hole repeatedly with water. This will fill the hole with soil and ensure the plant is sitting in a large area of moist soil.Back
