  • Spring Green Cabbage (Autumn)

    £5.99
    (10 plug plants)

    Cabbage Greens to enjoy in early spring

    This is a dwarf variety that can be planted quite close together (25-30cm). When planted in autumn you can expect to harvest it in very early spring the following year. Once the heads have matured they will form a loose head and you can harvest the whole plant. You will receive a growing guide with the plants.

    Variety: Spring Green

    Number of plants: 10 plug plants (organic*)

    In the kitchen: Enjoy spring green cabbage in stir-fries, steam it, boil it and all sorts. We rather like it cooked up in tasty bubble & squeak. With a poached egg on top. Mmm.

    Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery between September and mid/late October. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

    Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in autumn approx 30cm apart in raised beds, traditional veg patches or in large pots and planters. They will grow quite quickly while the weather is relatively warm in autumn, and then will slow down in the colder months. They are frost/snow hardy and can be grown outside quite happily. Protect from pigeons and slugs.

    When to harvest: Wait until the plant reaches maturity in late winter/early spring and harvest the entire plant as you wish to use it in the kitchen.

    Bring on the bubble & squeak!

    This is a good, reliable cabbage that is easy to grow over the autumn and winter months. It has great flavour and is super hardy so will withstand the cold winter well, ready to produce a harvestable head of cabbage greens over winter. The heart is a little looser than spring greens, so you can easily harvest the outer leaves through the season, or wait until late winter and harvest the whole plant.

    Fab edible flowers that make great companion plants

    £4.99
    (10 plug plants)

    An easy grower for autumn and winter

    This is a lovely looking, easy-to-grow Chinese cabbage plant that can be harvested whole or used as a cut & come again for individual leaves for stir-fries (it tastes amazing with ginger, honey and soy sauce) and salads. It grows well at this time of year, when it is less prone to bolting. Keep tatsoi plants well protected from slugs and they should do well. The plug plants come with a growing guide.

    Number of plug plants: 10 plug plants

    Variety: Tatsoi (organic*)

    In the kitchen: Try it in stir fries with ginger, say sauce, honey and garlic.

    Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in autumn approx 20-30cm apart in raised beds, traditional veg patches or in pots and planters. Protect against slugs, pigeons and cabbage white butterflies. They are frost tolerant so can be grown outside.

    When to harvest: Harvest whole once the plant reaches full size in late autumn/early winter, or harvest individual leaves to add to salads. When they go to seed, these plants will produce small yellow flowers and small broccoli-like florets – these are all edible too.
