Cabbage Durham Early Seeds
Info: Cabbage `Durham Early` is probably one of the most well known and reliable spring cabbages. It produces dark green, medium-sized conical heads with good texture and tasty flavour. As the name suggests harvesting starts particularly early in the season from Febuary on, providing a welcome harvest when there`s little else around.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow successionally from July to September. Sowing depth: 12mm and space 15 to 20cm between rows. Cabbage seedlings are ready for transplanting when they are between 6 and 8cm high, around 30 to 45cm apart. Cabbage grows best in partial-shade, in firm, fertile, free-draining soil which should be slightly calcareous. Water regularly, especially in dry periods. Start harvesting this very early variety from Febuary.
