There may be many different cabbage varieties available but fortunately they are all grown in a similar way. The only differences are the sowing and harvesting times, which will depend on your personal choice and when you might need them. Cabbage seeds can be sown in trays, pots or later on, directly outdoors into their growing positions.
For small pots and modular trays, use a general seed compost and sow the seeds thinly or one seed per module at a depth of 1cm. Apply water and place the pots or trays in a cold greenhouse, a cold frame, on a windowsill or in a sheltered area of the garden.
For outdoor sowing, use the side of a hoe to create a furrow approximately 1cm deep and sow the seeds thinly. Lightly cover the seeds and apply water along the length of the furrow. You can if you prefer, and if you have the space, sow directly into prepared seed beds and then transplant the seedlings later. This will allow you to use the main vegetable plot to grow other faster growing vegetables such as lettuce before the young cabbage plants are ready to be moved to their final positions.
Young cabbage plants will grow well in open ground and even in large containers but growbags are not really suitable. Water the young plants at the time of transplanting and sparingly thereafter if necessary, until before the first frost. Keep the plants well-watered during dry spells.
