The right site

Romanesco plants need a sunny site with deep, firm, moisture retentive soil.

Can be grown in....

Romanesco is best grown in raised beds or a well dug veg patch.

How far apart?

About 30cm apart.

Looking after your plants....

Romanesco is fairly hassle free. Follow these tips and you’ll do just fine.


Feed them

Make sure plants don’t dry out – regular watering is important during dry spells. Use a liquid feed once they’ve started to grow a little, as they need a little extra nitrogen.


Protect them

Keep weeds down and cover with a netting to keep birds away

Storage Tips

Harvest them as you want to eat them – they will store in the fridge for a few days, but are much better cooked fresh.

Ways to cook

Romanesco is delicious mixed in with cauliflower cheese.
