How do i grow cauliflower

Stress will cause your plant to behave in certain ways. One way to avoid stressing out your cauliflower is to be careful while transplanting it and not disturb the roots. Try to transplant your seedlings into a container when they are 4-5 weeks old, older seedlings do not transplant as well. 

Keep your newly transplanted seedlings protected with row covers at night if it is still early in the season to prevent them from cold weather damage. If the weather is too hot to begin with, plant your cauliflower in a cool spot and fold the large leaves over the heads to prevent the sun from damaging them.

harvesting

To harvest cauliflower, wait until the central head enlarges, is firm to the touch and has a nice colour. Use a sharp knife and cut off the entire head at its base. You want to do this before the buds separate or open.

Use the large cauliflower leaves that you’ve picked off to protect the head from the sun. Simply tie them up and around the head of cauliflower
