How to Grow Cabbages

Cabbages come in lots of colours and shapes, from crisp, crunchy white cabbage for coleslaw, dark green crinkled Savoy-type cabbages and ruby red cabbage, just perfect for pickles.

Many cabbages can be harvested as leafy spring greens, or you can leave them to heart-up and mature in your garden, or on your plot.

Depending on which varieties you choose, you can harvest and store cabbages for use throughout the year.

A good cabbage variety to try is Savoy Cabbage Alaska, great for small gardens.
