I would like to plant some cabbage SEEDS in August, that will give me bare Root cabbage transplants for sale and planting next Spring.Is it possible to get the Traditional Early York Seeds and where ?Or what would be a suitable alternative that you would suggest ?
I am having trouble with small maggott type creatures that appear between the top and bottom surfaces of the leaves and leave white tracks along the leaves of cabbage, brussells sprouts, kale, brocoli and even geraniums and other plants. What is this and what can I do to get rid of them?
Cabbage grew to maturity. Within 2 weeks the centre of the heads burst and produced green shoots. What would have caused this and how can I prevent it?
My problem is that on the cabbage leaves there is like white or grey spots and the following morning they leave big holes in them,i have a net and slug control in place it also effects lettuce and turnip leaves,thes are like stains on the leaves,thanks.
I'm growing cabbage and having major problems with caterpillars, how do I kill them organically or without poisoning us all?! I've tried salt but thats not working?
as my cabbages etc are now maturing nicely is it safe to remove the netting covering the plants or are they still at risk?
Is there anything I can buy to protect the cabbages and brocolli leaves being eaten by pigeons?
I notice this year in particular that there is a scarcity of cabbage plants coming through for planting in the traditional method (i.e say bundles of 100 plants ready for sowing) What is the reason and when were these plants originally planted to be ready for Spring. Some say it's the last week in July like the Spring cabbage? I've a small veg plot but this scarcity has intrigued me.
winter , summer etcthe method of when to sow and plant each type confuses me ie sow winter in spring etc
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?
