How do I Grow Cabbage?

You can start cabbage indoors early in the season. Use a seedling tray, plant one seed per cell, about 1/2" deep and cover with soil. When the seedling has 3 true leaves, you can move it outside.

Cabbage initially needs lots of water making them perfectly suited for life in your self watering gardens, with a constant supply of water they also grow much faster.  If leaves are spreading to other squares or begin to turn yellow, trim them back. Heavy mulch will help retain moisture and keep soil cool throughout the hotter months.

Harvesting

Cut off the entire head where the plant meets the root, just below the surface of the soil. You can harvest them as soon as the head feels firm, before it begins to open at the top. If any cabbage heads are beginning to open, harvest them immediately. Feel free to experiment on size here and see what flavour you prefer depending on size. 

Helpful Tips and Tricks

Preparing and using

Cabbage can be eaten cooked or raw. Cabbage makes a great addition to a salad, a stir fry or even a sandwich! Try making sauerkraut from cabbage and enjoy all year long. If kept in a cool dry place, cabbage will last weeks after being harvested.
