Spring Cabbage

Spring Cabbages are those that are grown for harvesting in the spring. They are generally sown in early summer and continue to develop over the summer and autumn. They are frost hardy and can remain in the ground through the cold winter ready for spring. Most varieties have a fairly tight heart that makes excellent coleslaw.

How To Grow

Depending on the climate these are best started off in pots, transplant the seedlings to their permanent position when they are 10cm in height and have grown five or six leaves. Water the young plants straight after transplanting and again every few days until they are well established.

How/When To Harvesting

When the heart is firm to touch the plants are ready to harvest.
