Cauliflower is a cool-season crop in the cole family (Brassica oleracea), which includes broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, collards, kale, and kohlrabi. However, it is more temperamental than its relatives. The trick to growing cauliflower is consistently cool temperatures, which is why almost three-fourths of commercial cauliflower is grown in the coastal valleys of California. However, you can try growing it at home no matter where you live, but timing is important to catch the temperature just right. It also needs rich soil and a steady supply of water and nutrients. Cauliflower likes temperatures in the 60s. In young cauliflower plants there is a fine balance between leaf and head growth. Any stress tips the balance toward premature heading, or “buttoning,” when the plant makes tiny button-sized heads. This can happen when it’s too hot or too cold. This also happens if plants sit in packs too long, or are stunted by drought or poor soil. Now that you know the challenges, allow us to equip you for success.

Quick Guide to Growing Cauliflower

  • Plant spring cauliflower 2 to 4 weeks before the last frost. Both in-ground gardens and containers are good options.
  • Plant cauliflower in rows with each plant spaced 18 inches apart. Rows should be 30 inches apart.
  • Improve your native soil by mixing in several inches of compost or other rich organic matter.
  • Add a 3-inch layer of mulch and give plants 1 to 1.5 inches of water weekly.
  • Cover young plants to protect them from cold weather.
  • When the cauliflower head is about the size of a golf ball, gently fold leaves over the head and secure them in place with twine.
  • Harvest cauliflower heads when they are still compact but large enough to eat (about 6 to 8 inches in diameter).
