Cabbage Golden Acre Seeds
Info: Cabbage `Golden Acre` is an excellent early summer variety with small to medium-sized green, round solid heads on compact plants with few outer leaves. It produces excellent small heads, which are tightly folded and solid of first rate quality and flavour. The heads are only 12 to 18cm in diameter, grey-green in colour and weigh three to five pounds. This cabbage is suitable for slaws, sauerkraut, salads, soups and stir fries.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow successionally from February to July. 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. Harvest from June to August (through to October).
