Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: For early summer crop sow indoors or in greenhouse in early spring.  Sow in flats, peat pots, or trays. Cover with 1/4 inch fine soil. Keep soil moist but not wet. Or seed directly into the garden in early April. For fall crop sow directly outdoors in late June.

SPACING: Outdoors plant rows 2 feet apart spacing plants at least 18 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION: Approximately 10 days in 70 degree room. Keep soil moderately
moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Tie outer leaves over the cauliflower heads when they are 2-4 inches across. A dozen plants are suggested for an average family of 4 or 5. Plant cauliflower in rich soil and keep moderately moist.
