Spring Cabbage is one of the first crops we can enjoy in the spring. But we have to be organised by planting now in the autumn.
Spring Cabbage is best sown in trays in the greenhouse or on a window sill in July/August, hardened off a bit outdoors in September and then planted out in the autumn to over winter.
You could also sow directly to the soil in July/August, but you’ll get better results sowing under glass.
So, if you were organised and got your Spring Cabbage sown in the summer, you can be planting it out now. It is a heavy-feeder so add plenty of garden compost and/or well-rotted manure before planting. Plant 45 cm between plants and 45 cm between rows.
