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. The seeds can be sown in early spring or July for a late harvest.

If directly sowing seeds outdoors, start the seeds 2-4 weeks before the last frost. If starting indoors, start 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 18″ apart. Don’t let the plants dry out. Red express cabbage requires 2 inches of water each week.
