In Zone 8, Cauliflower can be planted and grown in both the fall and spring seasons. Plant it early in spring to beat the heat. Plant them in a sunny garden bed with well-drained soil with a pH preferably around 6.5 to 7. Cauliflower need to be kept growing vigorously from planting to harvest. If the weather is dry make sure to provide supplemental water. Protect plants if there comes a deep freeze. Harvest cauliflower when the heads are full, but before the curds begin to separate.

Growing cauliflower demands a garden bed that has been well fertilized, and supplied with a healthy dose of compost. You will also need to fertilize them frequently throughout the gardening season. Cauliflower does not grow well in acidic garden soils. Use dolomite, lime, and fertilizer to prepare the soil for planting. For the best conditions for growing cauliflower, the garden soil pH should be between 6.0 and 7.0. You can use commercial fertilizer such as 5-10-15 however I always go with an organic vegetable food and amend soil with organic compost at planting time.

Keep the soil moist but not wet. Consistently wet soil can cause problems. When watering, don;t water from overhead. Instead, water at the base of the plant.
