When to sow
When to Sow Spring Hero Cabbage Seeds
July and August. Germinates in 7-14 days.
Where to Sow
Sow seed thinly in a prepared seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (3/4") deep. Keep well watered. Can also be sown in modules or pots and transplanted to final planting positions when 15cm (6in) tall. Prefers full sun, but shelter from strong winds.
What to do Next
Thin the seedlings as they appear to 5cm ( 2in) apart. Once seedlings are 10-15cm (4-6in) tall, transplant to their final growing site spaced 35-40cm (14-16in) apart. Always set the young plants 1.5cm (1/2in) deeper than they were in the seed bed. Keep well watered during hot dry spells.
March to April the following year
Feed plants in early spring with a high nitrogen feed to encourage growth. Pick regularly to prevent all cabbages cropping at the same time.
Excellent source of vitamin A, C & B. The darkest leaves contain the most nutrients.
