When planning an early harvest to have tender crops, sow in peat pots so as to keep roots intact when ready to transfer. Planting is 8 -12 weeks before the last frost. Snowball Cauliflower is self-blanching so no tying is necessary. It measures from 6” - 12” across. Mid spring crops can be planted to produce a harvest for summer consumption. Initial watering can contain a high phosphate fertilizer which enables the soil to properly adhere. Frequent watering every five to seven days is customary to yield good-looking heads.
