Cauliflower needs a humus-rich soil if it is to produce well. It also prefers a soil pH of 6.5 to 6.8. Before planting, add lime and large amounts of animal and chicken manure because cauliflowers are an extremely heavy feeder. Sow seed or seedlings from March to May. Keep them moist during all stages of growth. When the curds form, bend a few leaves over them to protect them from the sun and to keep the curds white. Select a variety which will mature in ten to 12 weeks or earlier. Protect them from cabbage butterfly with Dipel.
