Growing Tips

Successful cabbage growers know a few simple tricks of the trade: 1) Keep cabbage well watered and fertilized throughout the entire growing season. 2) Never plant cabbage, or any other brassica (broccoli, cauliflower, etc) in the same spot from year to year. 3) Use great care when wedding or cultivating around the plants as cabbage is very shallow rooted. For best results, plant cabbage in a rich organic soil with high humus content and a pH of at least 6.0. An application of lime will help prevent Clubroot, a common fungal disease that attaches to members of the Brassica family. For an earlier harvest, cabbage seed may be planted indoors 4-6 weeks prior to setting out in the garden. When transplanting, space the plants 30-45cm (12-18") apart in rows that are 50cm (20") wide. For a fall crop, direct seed late season varieties in mid-May, planting the seed 1cm (1/2") deep.
