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.
