Sow thinly direct into a finely raked seedbed at a depth of 13mm (½"). Germination 12-20 days. Transplant with a dibber or trowel when large enough to handle allowing 45cm (18") between plants each way. Grows best in well cultivated soil liberally manured the previous autumn. If the weather is dry water in well when transplanting. Cabbages require lime in the soil for optimum growth so add as necessary. Sowing to cropping: 32-34 weeks.

HEALTH BENEFITS: A good source of vitamins A and C. CULINARY TIPS: Use all the healthy outer, darker green leaves, as they contain most nutrients.
