Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Like all brassicas, Winter Green Cabbage can suffer from Cabbage Root Fly, Club Root, caterpillars and Cabbage Whitefly. It is recommended that you cover your 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

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

Fertile, well-draining soil

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

Feeding not required
