Su­gar­loaf cab­bage

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

The best cabbages for late win­ter and spring is the sweet, con­i­cal Su­gar­loaf and the big, dim­ple-leaf savoy va­ri­eties. Both tend to de­velop burst heads fol­low­ing heavy rain but this - though un­sightly - makes them even more nu­tri­tious. Only seedlings can go in now and they must be very small and planted into per­fectly-drained, en­riched soil. Tough old seedlings al­ways bolt use­lessly to seed in win­ter.
