Did You Know That Cauliflower is a Frost-Sensitive Cool Season Crop?

The cool season crops like Broccoli, Carrots, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Lettuce, and Spinach are usually planted in very late winter or early spring because we want to start 
enjoying garden fresh veggies early in the year.

We also plant them because they can tolerate late frosts.

Did You Know That Cauliflower is a Frost-Sensitive Cool Season Crop?

According to the folks at The Old Farmer’s Almanac Garden Guide (2015 Special Edition pp. 42) Cauliflower is a frost sensitive cool season crop.  If the young plants are exposed to freezing temperatures they may not produce a head (flower) at all.

They suggest this is one cool season crop that should not be planted too early without protection or plant in summer for a fall crop.

Trees That Please Nursery has Cauliflower plants available
 now in 6 pack containers for post frost planting.

When Is It Safe To Plant Your Warm Season Veggies In Late Frost Land?

When To Plant Your Warm Season Veggies In Late Frost Land?


Warm Season Veggies like tomatoes, chile, and bell peppers have no tolerance to late frosts so you must wait until the danger of freezing temperatures has passed.


The Wisdom of Trees That Please Nursery friends, clients, gardeners, old timers, and staff says you should wait to plant until Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) or Mother’s Day (May 10th).

This should be sound advice for most years! However, last year was an exception as we had a killing late frost on May 14th!  So Planter Beware!


If you plant before these dates you risk losing your warm season veggies to killing frosts! If you have planted watch the weather reports and be ready to cover your plants!

Vinca Plants Make An Attractive Ground Cover.

Try Vinca As A Ground Cover!

Vinca is also called Periwinkle. It is low growing maybe 1’ – 2’ tall. As it grows along the ground it occasionally roots where the stem touches bare soil thus helping it to spread and cover your ground.


Vinca produces Violet Colored flowers throughout summer. According to Wikipedia, in India the plant is known as sadaphuli which means always flowering!


Vinca plants grow well in full sun to partial shade. They seem to do best in part sun situations.

Our Staff invite you to visit the nursery and take a look at our Vinca plants 
as well as other ground covers we offer!
