Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

Like all brassicas, Red Cabbage can suffer from Cabbage Root Fly, Club Root, Cabbage Caterpillars and Cabbage Whitefly. It is recommended that you cover your Red Cabbage (and all brassicas) with a garden fleece to prevent them being eaten by pests. To prevent Club Root ensure that your soil is well draining and not too acidic. You may see the leaves wilt and turn purple. Below ground the roots will have become swollen and bulbous. Club Root is caused by a bacterial infection so if it occurs you should not plant brassicas there again for 4 years. If you find a plant with Club Root then burn it to try and prevent it from spreading to the rest of your garden. MORE

Water Regularly in Summer

Full SunMORE

Full Sun

To plant your Red Cabbage pick a spot with full sun, receiving around 6-8 hours of sun every day.MORE

Fertile, Well-draining

Use fertile, well-draining soil, such as a mix of three parts quality compost (you can buy compost that is specifically for growing vegetables) and one part topsoil.MORE

Feed Often

To get the biggest crops sprinkle some organic fertilizers such as worm castings or poultry pellets when you plant them and every month.MORE

Not required

Put the tools down! No pruning required.MORE
