Re: Broccoli and Cauliflower problems

Woody, If it were me I would wait a while, it is going to be very hot for a while. When I plant broccoli and cauliflower in the spring, I get it out real early same time as sugar pes and onions and raddishes. I never plant in the fall so somone here who does may be able to give better advice but I do know what heat does to those plants.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Broccoli and Cauliflower problems

OK this is just my opinion because mine did pretty much the same thing. Cabbage is doing good though. We had alot of rain with no sunshine ,then went to full sun with high temps. Most of my early crops didn't amount to squat. We are making some head way now with a bumper crop of maters, cukes, zucchini & corn is looking good but needs watered.

John,

Those Broccoli and Cauliflower I started 2 weeks ago, they came up in the peat pellets and looked good then Died, I started some more yesturday, I have them outside, when they push thru the surface I'm bringing them into the basement and setting them by a window to get sunlight but stay cool....hoping to get them in the ground by mid august so I have a chance at getting heads from them this year!!

Re: Broccoli and Cauliflower problems

John hit it right.Both are cool weather crops.Cauliflower likes about 1"-1 1/4" water a week also.I started some Cheddar Cauliflower about 2 weeks ago.Still have them in starting pots with some fertilizer pellets added.Fall crops are planted about 14 weeks before frost.Heads will form best in cool late Sept-Oct.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!
