How to Grow Amazing Cabbage

Growing cabbage is one of the great traditions on allotments. Cabbage is a hardy, nutritious, delicious and beautiful vegetable. Dependable, nutritious, and delicious raw or cooked, both green and red cabbage are among the most productive cool-season crops. 

Rotate the location of your cabbages each year. This is best practice for all vegetable growing anyway, but is particularly important at the allotment where it’s likely cabbages have been grown for years with the associated build up of potential pests and diseases.

Companion plants: Beets, celery, fragrant herbs, onions, potatoes. Avoid pole beans, strawberries, tomatoes. Whether you are a seasoned vegetable grower or are just growing cabbages or any vegetable for the first time – pests and diseases don’t care… so get to know your enemy – caterpillars, aphids, flea beetles and cabbage root fly are to name a few!
