General Information: 



Cabbage thrives in well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Before planting, prepare the soil by removing any weeds and loosening it with a garden fork or tiller. Incorporate compost or well-rotted manure into the soil to improve its fertility and drainage.

Space the cabbage plants 12-18 inches apart in the garden, allowing enough room for them to grow and develop. Ensure that the plants receive at least 6 hours of sunlight per day and water them regularly to keep the soil evenly moist.

Protect your cabbage plants from pests such as cabbage worms and aphids by using row covers or applying organic insecticides like Diatomaceous Earth. Regularly inspect the plants for any signs of disease or pest damage and take appropriate measures to control them.


Cabbage is ready to be harvested when the heads feel firm and have reached their desired size. Harvest before they begin to crack. Use a sharp knife to cut the cabbage heads at the base, leaving a few outer leaves intact to protect the inner leaves. If the stump is left in the garden and there is enough time left in the summer the cabbage will develop 4-6 tiny heads in a ring around the cut-off stem.
