Cabbage grows best when daytime temperatures are under 80 F. High fertility, improper water conditions, and heat can cause loose, puffy heads. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, 3 to 5 weeks before last frost, and fall planting done around June or July. Plants can grow 6 to 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Maintain consistent moisture to prevent heads from cracking. Water on the sides of the plant and avoid wetting any part of the plant.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro twice a month.

Harvest Tips:

Cut heads with sharp knife at ground level.
