(Brassica oleracea) A larger, later selection of Early Jersey Wakefield developed in the 1880's by the F.W. Bogiano Co. Excellent early to mid-season cabbage produces 4-6lb conical shaped heads well-suited for fresh eating, cooking, and kraut-making. Often planted as a spring cabbage, but also suitable for fall planting. 75-85 days to harvest. Approx. 100 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Transplant outdoors as soon as soil can be worked or approximately 4-5 weeks before last frost. Fall crops can be started approximately 3 months before last frost and set outdoors once seedlings have put out at least three true leaves. Cabbage plants are heavy feeders and therefore will benefit from a heavy dose of well-composted manure. Floating row covers and biological controls are effective tools to protect against damaging insects.
It’s possible we did something wrong because we are first time growers. However, after having this in the ground for 2 to 3 weeks, we are not seeing any growth yet.
