Garden-to-table guide to cauliflower
Tips for growing and caring for cauliflower, plus our favorite recipes come harvest time
It grows best in cool, humid regions; where summers are hot, time your planting so that you’ll harvest it well before or well after midsummer, and choose heat-tolerant varieties.
Planting. Start from seed or seedling, and space transplants 18 to 24 inches apart in rows that are 3 feet apart.
Watering. Water regularly, keeping soil moist but not soggy.

Instead of baking cauliflower in a classic cream sauce, we’ve sliced it thinly and roasted it (with very little fat) to get a nicely toasted flavor.
