for continual harvest of fresh cabbage. For fall produce sow outdoors in early summer.
SOIL: Cabbage will tolerate a broad range of soil, but prefers sandy loam. PH 6.5-7.
FERTILITY: Ensure adequate levels of nitrogen. Keep a regular watering schedule so
plants do not wilt in heat. GERMINATION: Sow in plugs at 70F/21C for 7 days or
direct seed outdoors in warm soil. SPACING: Transplant or thin seedlings out to 30-45cm/
12-18” for small head varieties; 45-75cm/18-30” for large head varieties. PESTS: Flea
