As a rule, you want to try to get the most out of the area you have available for the kitchen garden. This is especially true for us of different kinds of cabbage, which we can hardly get enough of, but where the necessary crop rotation often sets its limits. One of the ways to get more out of it per. square meters is to plant closer in a raised bed than is usually stated on the seed bags. For that use, some varieties can be planted better densely than others, and as far as cauliflower is concerned, the variety Amazing is quite suitable.
Normally it says on the bags that cauliflower must be planted 50 × 50 or even 60 × 60, but here in the cabbage bed with both savoy, cauliflower and red cabbage, Amazing is planted in a connection with a distance of 35 × 30. Still, you get cauliflower in a reasonably normal size: the bass in the picture weighs over a kilo.
If you want to experiment, Amazing can be set with the distance 25 × 25. Which I once did on a small a little over 1m2 bed, where it became 25 slightly smaller cauliflower heads, but all at once! I do not do that anymore - now small teams were seen at a time :-)
