Cabbage - Earliest of All
This variety produces medium green solid heads on compact plants, which enables it to be grown at 30cm spacings. It is ready from July onwards, for summer and autumn harvesting.
Sow the seeds thinly in a nursery bed 1cm deep, in late March or April, in rows 15cm apart. Sowings can be started in late February under cloches or in a cold frame or in modules under glass at 16C. Thin the seedlings as they grow to about 8cm apart. In April or May when the seedlings have 6 or 7 leaves they should be transplanted to the growing site spaced 45cm apart all round. Tread in firmly and water well. Never let the plants dry out at the roots in summer.
