How to grow cabbage:

Buy Organic Cabbage Seeds from The Green Chronicle (Pay in $US, £, Euro).

Some varieties (white cabbage for example) can be grown all year round.

Sow seeds outside in March and April and plant the seedlings in their permanent position in June and July. These cabbages should be ready for use in August and September.

If you make a second sowing in mid April they can be cut from October to January.

A third sowing in August will produce cabbages which be ready in January.

Different cabbages are suited to growing at various times of the year so consult the seed packet to see which type will suit you best.

Generally speaking cabbages require deep, rich well tilled soil. The seeds can be either broadcast or sown in drills 1 inch deep and 6 inches apart.

When the seedlings have developed their third leaf they can be transplanted 6 inches apart each way and left to mature.
