Planting And Care:

  • When transplants reach 5 inches tall, thin to make sure they are still the desired length apart
  • Fertilize 3 weeks after transplanting
  • Keep soil moist with mulch and water 2 inches per week
  • Start cabbage seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last spring frost
  • See frost dates for your area here
  • Harden off plants over the course of a week
  • Transplant outdoors 2 to 3 weeks before the last expected frost date
  • Mulch thickly to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature
  • Practice crop rotation with cabbage year to year to avoid a build-up of soil-borne diseases
  • Although broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage are closely related, cabbage will not tolerate them
  • Also, avoid proximity to strawberries and tomatoes
