Cabbage - Greyhound
A reliable old favourite, Cabbage Greyhound produces early maturing pointed hearts of excellent flavour. Greyhound produces compact plants with very few wasted outer leaves.
Sowing from March to June, thinly, 1cm deep in drills 23cm apart in well-drained, fertile soil, which has been raked to a fine tilth and contains plenty of well-rotted compost or organic matter. It will also be beneficial to rake in 3oz/sq yard of any balanced fertiliser. Transplant when seedlings have 5-6 leaves, spacing 38cm apart each way. Water ground regularly, especially in dry periods. Hoe between plants occasionally, and give a liquid feed as heads begin to develop.
