Hardy Biennial

Description – Probably one of the most well known and reliable spring cabbages, Cabbage Durham Early produces firm, pointed, well flavoured hearts on compact plants.

Can also be sown or planted closely for delicious ‘spring greens’ ready to harvest from February.

Sowing – To avoid danger of clubroot, grow your brassicas (cabbages, sprouts, cauliflowers, etc) on a different site each year.

Sow seeds July to August for overwintering or in spring for summer cutting. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 23cm (9in) apart in soil raked to a fine tilth and which contains plenty of compost or manure. It may also be beneficial to rake in 100g/sq.m (3oz/sq yd) of a balanced fertiliser.

Growing – Transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle, spacing by 3-38cm (12-15in) each way or at 1cm (4in) apart for ‘spring greens’.

Aftercare – Water regularly, especially in dry periods. Hoe between plants as required.

Harvest – February to August
