I see my cauliflower leaves becoming yellow. What must I do to boost the growth of the plant. It has been coming right with big leaves. Can I pick leaves for consumption

Depends how old the plants are.. If old probably a normal function. For your climate zone it says to plant from onwards. Your plants should only be about half grown if planted early Nov. High rainfall may cause the yellow. Look up the internet to see what you can do with caulie leaves to eat. You could put on some fertiliser but not too much as this will only produce lots of leaf and little/no caulie.
