Sowing Instructions – Outdoors: sow thinly, March-June, in a seed bed, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 60cm apart, when plants are about 10cm tall. Allow 60cm between plants. Plant firmly and water well. Or sow indoors, February-April, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out, April-June, 60cm apart, into well-drained, fertile soil. For smaller cabbages, reduce spacing to 40cm. Harvest: September-November.

Hints and Tips – Shredded cabbage is perfect in salads, coleslaws, or simply lightly cooked.

Seeds – Approx 50
