GROWING NOTES

Can tolerate light shade but will slow maturity. Light
shade can be beneficial in warm weather.



Prefers well-drained, fertile soil high in organic
matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil. This heavy
feeder also needs plentiful, consistent moisture.   



Biennial grown as an annual.



Requires good soil, timely planting and protection from
pests.



Some green varieties have a bluish cast.


MAINTAINING

Sow seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before average last spring
frost. Keep soil warm (about 75 F) until germination. Then keep plants
around 60 F. Provide direct sun so plants don’t get leggy. When plants
are 4 to 6 weeks old, transplants into garden 12 to 24 inches apart,
in rows 18 to 34 inches apart. Use closer spacings for smaller, early
varieties, wider spacings for larger, late-season varieties.



Can be direct seeded as soon as you can work the soil.
Will germinate at soil temps as low as 40 F. Plant ½ to ¾ inch deep,
about 3 inches apart. Thin to final spacings.


Direct seed in summer for fall crop, or start transplants
in late May and transplant in late June or early July.


Plants have shallow root systems. Avoid even shallow
cultivation. Mulch to protect roots, reduce weed competition and
conserve moisture.


Use floating row cover to protect crop from early pests.


When heads are mature, they are prone to splitting in
response to any stress or a rain following a dry period. Avoid splitting
by choosing varieties that resist splitting, spacing plants close
together (8 to 12 inches for early varieties, 12 to 16 inches for later
varieties), using shovel to sever roots on one side about 6 inches
from the plant, or twisting plants after heads have firmed to break
some of the roots.


To help reduce disease, do not plant cabbage or other
cole crops in the same location more than once every three or four
years.


When cabbages are 4 to 5 inches tall, thin or transplant
to stand 18 to 24 inches apart. Apply a thick layer of mulch to retain
moisture. Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1
inch per week. Contact your local county extension office for controls
of common cabbage pests such as aphids, root maggots, cabbageworms, and
cabbage loopers.
