Planting Instructions



Rows: start seed indoors about 4 weeks before transplanting outdoors, or directly seed outdoors using season extenders such as wall-o-waters for protection. Cauliflower can be planted outdoors after the average date of last frost.

When transplanting or thinning, leave 12" to 24" between plants. Plant in rows 24"' to 30" apart.

Beds: when planting in beds, allow 18" to 24" between each plant, or seed thinly using row cover for protection. Thin to 18" to 24" apart.

Containers: when planting in containers, allow 18" to 24" between each plant.

Tips

Wash cauliflower well; loopers may be hiding. A short soak in salt water will usually dislodge them.
