Red Cabbages are something just a little bit different and special.

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.

Once again 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).

  • 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.
