Carrot
Daucus carota
Sow carrots to avoid the very hot part of the year but also frosty periods. Sow either spring or autumn, in very mild areas all year round is possible. A sunny position is required. Carrots need a friable, well drained soil and appreciate mulching. Sow directly where they are to grow, 10 mm deep, 2-3 cm apart in rows 30 cm apart. Germination is slow, preventing the soil from drying out is important for success, covering seed rows with shadecloth or cardboard can help. Thin out to 5 cm apart. Avoid fresh animal manures as they can cause forking. Never try to transplant carrots as the roots will fork in all directions!

Cauliflower
Brassica oleracea var. botrytis
Cauliflower is an annual cool season crop that is frost hardy. It germinates best at 18 - 25C soil temperature. In temperate areas sow late December to May; in very cool, highland areas sow October to February; in inland areas sow February to September; in subtropical areas sow March to June; in tropical areas sow April to July. It can be difficult to grow cauliflowers well in subtropical and tropical areas as they are not as hardy as cabbage in hot weather and quality can be poor. Hot weather results in bolting to seed before developing curds and can also cause browning or discolouring of the curd. It only takes a few days of hot weather to cause this effect. Hybrid varieties are a better choice than open-pollinated types for these hotter areas. It is also important to plant early enough in hotter areas so the plants mature well before the weather warms up in spring. Sow seed 10 mm deep in trays or seedbed, germination takes 4 - 10 days. Transplant seedlings by first removing the seed leaves and planting deeper, up to the 1st set of true leaves. Space plants 40 cm apart in rows 60 - 75 cm apart. It requires a fertile, well drained soil with a pH of 6 - 7.5. It is a heavy feeder, needing plenty of nitrogen and potassium. Prepare soil by digging well-rotted compost or animal manure through the bed. Keep soil moist; add organic fertiliser when plants are half grown. Harvest while heads are still tight and white.
