Chinese Cabbage Seeds
Chinese cabbage leaves are crisp with a sweet and spicy flavour. Tastes great either raw or cooked. Matures in 85 days. The seeds are best sown very 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. Seeds can be sown in early spring, or July for a late harvest.
If directly sowing seeds outdoors, the seeds can be started 2-4 weeks before the last frost. If starting indoors, the seeds can be sown 4-8 weeks before the last frost. When the seedlings are 2 inches tall, they can be transplanted 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. Requires 2 inches of water each week.
