Cabbage - January King 3
This is a hardy winter cabbage, and not even a severe frost seems to bother it. The heads of Savoy Cabbage January King are crisp and crunchy with good flavour and the leaf is a conifer-blue colour.
Sow seeds outdoors in a well prepared seed bed in spring, or alternatively, in a greenhouse or frame. Sow seeds thinly 12mm deep in rows 23cm apart. If the soil is dry, water well and allow to drain before sowing. Transplant at the 5-6 leaf stage allowing 6cm between plants. The soil should be firm and contain plenty of well-rotted compost, preferably from a previous crop, it should also be well limed. Hoe occasionally and water if the weather is dry. Harvest in very late winter.
