Pinetree Cabbage Mix

If you don’t grow cabbage because you can’t use them all when they mature, this mixture may solve the problem. You’ll get early ones, late ones, (and all maturities in between), red ones, green ones, little ones, big ones, domed ones and flat ones, smooth ones and savoyed ones. 

100 seeds 

PLANTING

Brassica oleracea

Germination: 7-12 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost or 4-6. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of the suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before the last frost. Sow in late spring to transplant out for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: In spring when the soil temperature reaches at least 60ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 15-18” apart for small headed varieties, 24-36” for large headed varieties. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in early summer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

How much does a packet plant: 15-20 foot single row

Harvest If the heads feel solid by pushing on them lightly they are ready to harvest. Harvest as soon as possible for early varieties to prevent splitting. Later maturing storage varieties will hold longer.

Tips: A heavy feeder. Needs to grow in fertile soil, rich in organic matter. Amend with compost if the soil is not fertile. Provide adequate, even moisture for optimum growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

I recommend this product

Fun mix, just wish there was a little more diversity.

Out of a dozen or so plants there was an interesting mix of cabbages, but none savoyed and several repeats of the same, or very close varieties. Granted it was a small sample size, and I have a dozen more transplants to put out soon for fall, so perhaps more variety will present. At 4 inches+ there still seems to be no savoy varieties. That's just my minor gripe. Otherwise, I'm pleased.

Fun to see what grows

Have two recognizable kinds growing in the garden. Sturdy.
