  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well drained, moisture-retentive and firm

    A classic spring cabbage variety for picking loose-leafed as greens, or leaving to heart up and produce a large, handsome pointed head with an outstanding flavour and crisp texture. As the name suggests you can start picking this versatile spring vegetable particularly early in the season, providing a welcome harvest when there's little else around.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow seeds in late summer into well-prepared seed beds in shallow drills 1.5cm deep. Keep well watered and thin seedlings to 5cm apart as they appear. Once plants are 10cm tall, transplant to their growing site, planting them 35-40cm apart and about 1.5cm deeper than they were in the seedbed and firming well. Protect from slugs and net against pigeons. Growing spring cabbage under horticultural fleece or mesh will prevent caterpillar damage.

  • Sow: July-August

  • Harvest: April-May

  • Approximate quantity: 450 seeds.
