Cultivating Red Express Cabbage Seeds
When planting Red Express cabbage seeds, follow the same guidelines as other cabbage varieties.
- Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last expected frost date, and transplant seedlings outdoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost date. Ensure seedlings are hardened off before transplanting to reduce transplant shock.
- Choose a location with full sun to partial shade and well-drained, fertile soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Space transplants 18-24 inches apart in rows, with rows spaced 24-36 inches apart.
- Water consistently, ensuring the soil stays moist but not waterlogged. Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer at planting time and once more during the growing season.
