With a fantastic range of varieties spanning the seasons, no organic veg patch should be without cabbage. From summer cutting to autumn, winter savoy to collard cabbage, some varieties even come in miniature forms, providing a wonderfully varied selection.

Plugs save a lot of time and space as there is no need to pre-sow in seed beds and transplant. Cabbages are hardy little plants, but a few simple tips will mean you can enjoy fresh, organic cabbage all year. Netting is a good start – it’s worth investing a few quid on a brassica net which will keep off both those. . . Show More >

Plugs save a lot of time and space as there is no need to pre-sow in seed beds and transplant. Cabbages are hardy little plants, but a few simple tips will mean you can enjoy fresh, organic cabbage all year. Netting is a good start – it’s worth investing a few quid on a brassica net which will keep off both those pesky pigeons and the cabbage white butterfly. This also means your crops will be organic. Before planting, it’s a good idea to rake in some lime over the ground as these plants don’t like a low pH level. Cabbages are quite hungry plants, so mixing in some seaweed meal prior to planting will help them on their way. If your soil is poor, simply add a slow-release fertiliser in mid-summer – a good organic gardener will always look to improve their soil and lessen the need for additives. An important note is to always rotate your cabbages – don’t grow them on the same patch year after year. This is common with food growing, so it pays to draft a 3-4 year plan, noting where your plants are growing. One final tip is to plant mint as a companion plant, as its smell will put off potential pests.
