Planting Instructions:

  • Sowing:
    • Spring: Direct sow outdoors from mid-April to June.
    • Autumn: For winter harvest, sow indoors in July, transplanting seedlings outdoors in September.
  • Seed depth: Sow seeds 1.5cm deep.
  • Spacing: Thin seedlings to 45cm between plants and 50cm between rows.

Growing Needs:

  • Sunlight: Full sun to partial shade.
  • Soil: Fertile, well-drained soil enriched with compost.
  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during dry periods, but avoid overwatering.
  • Feeding: Feed with a general-purpose organic fertiliser every few weeks.


  • Ready: When heads are firm and feel heavy, usually 90-100 days after sowing.
  • Method: Cut the head at the base, leaving a few outer leaves attached.
  • Storing: Fresh cabbage stores for up to a week in the fridge. For longer preservation, ferment Vertus for a delicious and vibrant sauerkraut.

Bonus Tips:

  • Succession sowing: Make repeat sowings every few weeks for a continuous harvest.
  • Earthing up: As the plant grows, pull soil up around the stem for support.
  • Companion planting: Interplant with herbs like dill or thyme for pest control.
  • Winter protection: Cover young plants with fleece or netting during harsh winters.
