Cultivation advice Organic Cauliflower Snowcrown

  • Start indoors in a warm, well-lighted area from early Jan through Mar for the earliest of crops. Sow seeds ¼” deep in good compost. Keep evenly moist. Seedlings emerge in 5-8 days at 70º F. They do best covered lightly with soil. Alternatively sow directly outside from late Mar – May..
  • Transplant seedlings to individual pots when large enough to handle. Plant outside 2-3 weeks before your last frost date. They grow best at 55º to 65º F. Do not let seedling become more that 5 weeks old because older seedlings do not mature well transplanted.
  • Set plants 18″ apart in rows 24″ apart.  Harvest from Jun – Sep.
  • Water deeply once a week in dry weather. Cultivate or mulch to control weeds. High fertility and abundant supply of water throughout the growing season are important.
