Chinese Cabbage Seeds
Chinese cabbage leaves are crisp with a sweet and spicy flavour. Tastes great, either raw or cooked. Chinese cabbage matures in 85 days.
It’s best to sow the seeds in early spring or mid-summer, as the heat will cause the heads of cabbage to bolt.
How to Grow Cabbage
Cabbage is a cold-hardy leafy green that can tolerate frost as it grows. It only likes cool temperatures and is a heavy feeder. Sow the seeds in early spring or July for a late harvest.
If directly sowing seeds outdoors, sow the seeds 2-4 weeks before the last frost. If starting indoors, sow the seeds 4-8 weeks before the last frost when the seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant outside 2-4 weeks before the last frost. Mulch heavily to retain the moisture and temperature. Space plants 12-18″ apart. Don’t let the plants dry out. Cabbage requires 2 inches of water each week.
