Savoy Cabbage - King F1
This variety is vigorous and heavy cropping, producing large heads, which are sweet tasting with good winter hardiness.
Sow outdoors thinly, from March to May, in a seed bed, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, 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 rows. Plant firmly and water well. Or sow indoors, from February to May, 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, from May to July, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest from August to November.
