Brassica oleracea

Early Jersey Wakefield is known for the solid, 17cm conical heads it produces on compact plants. The heads, which average 1 to 2kg, are tender & crisp & ideal for small gardens or containers. Cabbage grows best when daytime temps are under 26°C. High fertility, wrong water conditions, & heat can cause loose, puffy heads. Spring planting should be as soil can be worked, 3/5 weeks before the last frost. Autumn planting should be done around May. Plants can grow 15 to 30cm tall. Can be planted closely so ideal for the smaller garden. Ideal for using raw in salads & coleslaw. Usually raised as seedlings & then planted into the vegetable patch. Sow lightly, cover with a layer of soil & pat down. Use liquid soluble fertilizer every few weeks. Crops will benefit from soil enrichment with compost and manure. Easy to grow from seed.
