Description

Head cabbage is a native crop of the cruciferous family. It can be harvested late into the fall and is excellent for winter storage.

Origin:

Europe

Growing tips

Cabbage prefers humus, calcareous, deep, somewhat heavy soil in a sunny location. Uniform watering and nutrient supply are important during growth. When planting seedlings, the soil should be moist and the seedlings should be well watered. A final harvest in winter is possible, as cabbage tolerates sub-zero temperatures. But to be on the safe side, you can still cover it with a fleece.
