Learn to Grow Chinese Celery Cabbage
Start Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost
Direct Seed: 1/2" Deep
Thin: 1-6" Apart
Plant Outdoors: 6-8” Apart
Instructions- Sow seed indoors 1⁄4"" deep 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Plant out just before the last frost. Take care not to disrupt the shallow root system while transplanting and weeding. Make sure cabbage has a regular supply of water. Mulching cabbage will reduce weeds and keep moderate temperatures and even moisture in the soil. Cabbage is a heavy feeder and consequently needs an even supply of nutrients.
