A great cabbage for sowing in summer for a continued harvest from winter into spring. Leaves packed with nutrients, this is a great crop for harvests when other greens are scarce.
Sow in August in soil prepared with farmyard manure or a general fertiliser to get your cabbages off to a head-start as they grow strongly and healthily.
As they grow in late summer and autumn be sure to water well and cover the cabbages with protective netting if pesky birds and cabbage white butterflies make an appearance.
This cabbage is so versatile, harvest in winter if you want a compact cabbage with an established heart, or in early spring for looser leaves. Either way, Winter Green is nutritious and delicious.
