Growing cabbages like a pro!
Autumn is a good time to plant all kinds of cabbage. Sow some seed in a tray of Black Magic Seed Raising Mix or find seedlings in the garden centre. Cabbages need sun and well-drained garden soil.
Cabbages grow best in soil that has a pH of about 6.5 to 7.5. Often, soil is more acidic than this so pro gardeners like to use a special kit to accurately check their soil’s pH. If the pH is too low they add some garden lime. They call this ‘sweetening the soil’ and it helps cabbage roots absorb all the nutrients they need.
