    Red Cabbage produces medium sized heads adding attractive red/purple colour to salads. Eaten fresh or cooked it is high in vitamins A, B and C. Popular vegetable, high in calcium and iron.

    Pests may include slugs/snails and white cabbage butterfly caterpillars. Use Vege Net or Dipel for caterpillar control.

    How to Grow

    Cabbage is a fast growing annual that requires a full sun position with very fertile soil rich in organic matter. Growing a large cabbage plant will result in the biggest possible head harvest. Sow seeds into pots/punnets using a good quality seed raising mixture. Transplant seedlings to the garden when they are 5cm high and mulch thickly around the plant. We highly recommend covering all your Brassica's with Vege Netting when they are first transplanted to exclude the white cabbage moth. If the moth does lay it's eggs the best natural solution is the use of Dipel spray. Side dressings of fertiliser can be used if growth is slow. Plants will begin to form up a Cabbage head after 70-90 days. 

    Sow all year except in hot weather

    Sow direct into pots then transplant to garden at 5cm high
