Cauliflower Plants


Anonymous added on June 1, 2011 | Answered

I live in eastern PA. and my cauliflower plants are three weeks in the soil and starting to produce. But the head is starting to brown in a few spots. A friend thought the head might need to be covered to stop sun damage. Is that needed? If so, what should I use, the plant leaves or burlap maybe?

    Protect cauliflower from brown spots by tying the leaves of the plant over the head. This will protect it from the sun's rays and keep the cauliflower nice and white.
