Instructions Cabbage is easy to grow. Sow seed indoors ¼" 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 will reduce weeds and keep moderate temperatures and even moisture in the soil. Cabbage is a heavy feeder and needs an even supply of nutrients.

Great flavor and more compact then most cabbage

by

This is my go-to cabbage ever year. It grows very well in southern Indiana with limited issues with bugs. the flavor is very mild making it a great addition to things like rollless cabbage rolls. the plants don't get massive which helps for small space gardens. I've grown this in a square foot garden more than once and had success.

The best around!!
