How to Grow?

When learning how to grow cauliflower it is important to remember they require a firm, fertile soil as the main cause of failure - button heads - is loose, infertile soil. This is where a fairly heavy soil is an advantage to the vegetable grower. Try choosing a bed that is in a reasonably sunny spot in which to plant your cauliflower vegetables.

This enables the essential firmness to become establish, whilst having that all important fertility... remember - feed the soil not the plant! - an essential first tip if you are just starting to learn how to grow cauliflower.

Acid soils encourage club root, a terrible disease of the brassica family which gardeners fear, so make sure you add lime to get a pH of about 6.5 to 7.0 - this is not rocket science.

So for those who want to know how to grow cauliflowers without the guesswork just get yourself a pH meter or soil testing kit and follow the instructions. It`s always a sensible move to get to know all the facts you can about your soil.

Apply a dressing of a general fertiliser like Growmore in the spring, two or three weeks before transplanting your cauliflower plants. Don`t dig it in but rake gently over the surface as you will want to keep the bed firm.
