Care Guide

Average pest and disease resistance

Liable to attack by all of the brassica pests and diseases (e.g. cabbage root fly, flea beetle, cabbage white butterflies / caterpillars, club root), but as they are fast-growing they generally escape most of them. Horticultural fleece or fine mesh can be used to keep off pests.MORE

Water regularly

Water the plants regularly to keep the ground constantly moist. If you are unsure, feel the soil with your hand. If it feels dry up to a fingernail deep then you can give the plant a watering. During winter the cold weather and rain should be enough to keep the plant watered most of the time. MORE

Full Sun

Plant in a position where the plants will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Any fertile, well-draining soil

Will grow well in a mix of three parts compost and one part topsoil. MORE

Feed when newly planted

Around 2 weeks after planting, Pak Choi would benefit from a nitrogen-rich fertiliser such as blood meal to help promote green, leafy growth. It will not need any more feeding after that.MORE

Pruning not required

No pruning needed.MORE
