Cabbage

Feed them

Make sure plants don’t dry out – regular watering is important during dry spells. Use a liquid feed once they’ve started to grow a little, as they need a little extra nitrogen.

Cabbage

Protect them

Keep weeds down and cover with a netting to keep birds away

Storage Tips

Harvest them as you want to eat them – they will store in the fridge for a few days, but are much better cooked fresh.

Ways to cook

Bubble and squeak is a fabulous cabbage dish, or you can simply stir fry with a little vegetable oil.
