Planting Tips For Heirloom Cauliflower Seeds:
Start your seeds early in peat pots to avoid disturbing the roots later. Plant the seeds 1/2″ deep, 8-12 weeks before the last expected frost. Gradually expose the seedlings to the weather for several hours each day, then transplant them about 2 weeks before the last expected spring frost. They should be spaced 15-18″ apart. Cauliflower also grows exceptionally well when planted in midsummer for a fall crop. Cauliflower and celery are good companion plants as celery repels the destructive white cabbage moth. Avoid planting cauliflower with tomatoes. Keep the soil consistently moist and well enriched with well composted manure or organic material for full head production. Work a quart of chicken manure into the soil around each plant 3 weeks after setting out the plants and again a month later. The pH of the soil should be about 6.5.
