Savoy Cabbage Vertus
Vertus Savoy Cabbage produces flat round heads of greyish-green leaves which are very hardy. They are late to mature and stands well without splitting.
The hardiest of all the cabbage family. Familiar for their crinkled and blistered leaves, they will withstand the hardest of our winters to give welcome green stuff to your dinners when fresh produce is in short supply

When to sow
When to Sow Savoy Vertus Seeds
April to May
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 40-45cm (16-18in) 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.
December to February
Cabbages should not be grown in the same ground two years running. Always grow on firm, fertile soil thats has been dug well in advance of planting.
A good source of pro-vitamin A, vitamin C and B.
