Winter Green Cabbage (Autumn)
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, more like a savoy cabbage.
Variety: Wintergreen (organic*)
Number of plants: 10
In the kitchen: Enjoy it 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 in September and October. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.
Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in September and October 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.
*Transplants suitable for organic growing.
