York Cabbages

John McLoone asked 13 years ago

I have trawled through the web looking for York Cabbage seeds – the family favourite. We usually buy the young plants, but this year I was hoping to grow from seed, and save seed for following years. Is it possible to buy York Cabbage seeds, and where might I find them?

York cabbage is a name for a type of cabbage, not a variety. It has pointed heads rather than rounded ones. Varieties include ‘April’ for spring and ‘Greyhound’ for summer and autumn. Most garden centres and seed catalogues have these or similar.
