Our Feedback
I have been using slug banish for two years now and am delighted with the results. I also have used the bio-sterilant mustard and it appears to have have made an impact on the onion white rot which has ruined my onjon and garlic for the past two years. At the present time the onions and shallots are not showing any sign of disease, and the shallots will soon be ready to harvest. I wonder if anyone else has reported this?

Red Cabbages are something just a little bit different and special, and very popular in the Shirley household!

Whilst they can be cooked and eaten like any conventional cabbage they really come into their 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 with 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).

  • Set out 18" (45 cm) apart in rows 18" (45 cm) apart.
  • Harvest from September to late spring, depending on planting time.
  • 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.
Available from approximately late March / early April 2019
