Johnny's Cauliflower Planting Program

Johnny's CAULIFLOWER Planting Program

Cauliflower Succession Planting & Season Extension

Johnny's Planting Programs are designed to take the guesswork out of succession planting, allowing you to easily extend your harvest throughout the growing season.

Successive plantings of varieties in the appropriate seasonal slots and sequence will allow you to maximize your cauliflower quality and harvest window. Choose from a dozen cauliflower varieties by type, days-to-maturity, heat and cold tolerance, color, and optimal sowing/harvesting periods.
