Our Feedback
I am a totally satisfied customer. Who was amazed by the carefully packed tree I'd ordered only days before. Which arrived in perfect condition. I throughly approve of the paperless policy and the lack of acres of plastic in the packaging. I will now be a return customer and recommend to all my friends

Red Cabbage is something just a little bit different and special.

Whilst it can be cooked and eaten like any conventional cabbage it really comes into its own as a vegetable when 'pickled' with sugar and vinegar; this is a Shirley family favourite and Nanna Shirley's recipe can be found in our recipe section.

We have carefully blended a selection of Red Cabbage varieties which will provide a successive harvest and get over the all 'coming at once' problem inherent in growing just one variety.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects if allowed to 'go over' and flower (so if you have room leave any plants in that have gone too far rather than pulling them out straight away).

  • Sow from March to April thinly in rows 6" (15 cm) apart. Sow in ½" (1 cm) deep drills.
  • Thin to one seedling per 3" (7.5 cm) or transplant into suitable pots.
  • Set out when large enough 18" (45 cm) apart in rows 18" (45 cm) apart.
  • Harvest approximately September-December.
  • Top Tips
  • Red Cabbages grow well in a rich soil, but do not overfeed as this makes them more susceptible to frost damage.
  • Protect from pigeons - pigeons love Brassicas (so do partridges).
  • Take precautions against the dreaded Cabbage White butterfly - inspect your crop regularly, spray with our BioFriend Plant Defence or use a physical barrier such as insect netting.
