Cauliflower has lost much of its popularity recently which is a shame as it is one of the most successful veg that can grow all year round in Britain. Many chefs are promoting it with new imaginative recipes but 'cauliflower cheese' is still a tasty option just don't overcook it.
Cauliflower 'All the Year Round' is a great variety, with white curds that can be harvested for many months of the year.
Catch crops can also be sown under cauliflowers to help increase the productivity of the patch such as radishes, lettuce or salad leaves. Or you could alternate your plantings with companion plants such as onions or garlic to confuse pests.
