Choosing and preparing a planting site

- Prepare the soil in advance by mixing in aged manure and/or compost.
- Soil should be well-draining: roots that stand in water cause heads to split or rot.
How to plant cabbage
- Before planting the seedlings outdoors, harden off the plants over the course of a week.
- Transplant small plants outdoors on a cloudy afternoon 2 to 3 weeks before the last spring frost date.
- Plant seedlings 12 to 24 inches apart in rows, depending on the size of the head desired. The closer you plant, the smaller the cabbage heads.
How to grow Marulli 201 cabbage (East-West Seeds)
- When seedlings reach about 5 inches tall, thin to leave the desired space between them. If you wish, transplant the thinned seedlings elsewhere.
- Mulch thickly around the area so as to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.
- Water 2 inches per square foot per week.
- The optimum soil temperature for growth is 60 to 65° F so young plants exposed to temperatures below 45°F for a period may bolt or form loose heads.
- Fertilize 2 weeks after transplanting with a balanced (10-10-10) fertilizer.
- Three weeks later, add a nitrogen-rich fertilizer because cabbage needs nitrogen in the early stages.
- Practice crop rotation with cabbages to avoid a buildup of soil-borne diseases.
