    If you pull some out and leave 2 in the box you may get a head.

    How to Grow Cauliflower in Pots When it comes to growing cauliflower in containers, the first consideration, obviously, is the container. A large pot with a width of 12 to 18 inches and minimum depth of 8 to 12 inches is adequate for one plant. If you have a larger pot, such as a half-whiskey barrel, you can grow up to three plants. Any type of container will work, but be sure it has at least one good drainage hole in the bottom, as your cauliflower plants will rot quickly in soggy soil. For growing cauliflower in containers, the plants need a loose, lightweight potting mix that holds moisture and nutrients but drains well. Any quality commercial potting soil consisting of ingredients such as peat, compost, fine bark and either vermiculite or perlite works well. Never use garden soil, which quickly becomes compacted and prevents air from reaching the roots.
