Where to Sow  Sowings can be made in trays or  modules under glass at 13°C. Later sowings can be made into a seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (3/4") deep in short rows.
What to do Next   As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves, prick off into trays 5cm (2") apart or thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out, spacing plants 35-45cm (14-18in) apart  between plants and 45-60cm (18-24in) between the rows. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 7-10cm (3-4in) apart , then once plants are 15cm (6in) tall, they can be lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions, spaced the same as detailed above.

Handy Tip  Cabbages should not be grown on the same ground two years running. Always grow on firm fertile soil that has been dug well in advance of planting.
