How to Grow: Sow seed indoors in a soilless mix 5 weeks before last frost date, 6 mm (1/4”) deep and keep at 21°C (70°F) for the 7-10 day germination period.
Transplanting: Grow on at a slightly cooler temperatures then harden off and plant outside late May. Space plants 45 cm (18”) apart in rows with the rows 75 cm (30”) apart. Cabbages are shallow rooted to cultivate carefully.
Harvesting: Mature heads that are ready to pick need not be of a certain size to pick. When heads are firm and solid all the way through when squeezed, the cabbage is ready for harvest. Cut the stem close to the ground rather than pulling it out roots and all.
