Growing cauliflower in garden containers is not that hard to do. Here are a few helpful tips to make sure that you have great success.  Just follow the tips on proper requirements and ideal growing conditions.
 
Cauliflower  is a cool season crop but there are many hybrid cultivars available for both temperate and tropical weather, which means it can be grown diversely in a variety of climates.  It's most important to plant the variety that fits the season and climate you are living in.  

General in warmer regions you can start to sow cauliflower seeds in fall and continue to sow the seeds till the end of winter.  In a cooler zone it's better to sow the seeds late winter and up to spring to get summer or fall harvest.

When choosing a
containerchoose one that is 12" deep and at least 10 inches wide to allow for enough room that the plant can grow. Make sure the pot has drain holes.  You can grow one plant versus pot.  If you go with a much larger container you can grow 2 to 3 plants.

Place the pot in a sunny spot that receives at least 5 hrs of sunlight. Make sure you use quality potting soil that is light, deep and humus rich.  Cauliflower like moist soil that drains well. Water regularly and don't let the soil dry out.  When the head becomes 2 to 3 inches in diameter cover it with the inner leaves by breaking over the head. Fertilize with a heavy feeder.

Last tips to remember - Cauliflower heads become ready for harvest in 3 to 4 months.  It like moderate temps, and the right watering.
