Growing Calendar for Cabbage Seeds - Duncan F1 Hybrid
Delivery: 5-7 working days
Cabbage 'Duncan' F1 Hybrid is probably the most versatile cabbage in the world! Sown in February this pointed variety is ready by mid-June.
Successional sowings will give long-standing hearts through summer to October, leafy greens from October to March and hearted spring cabbages through to June.
A row of cabbage Duncan will also act as a great windbreak to nearby tender crops or companion bedding nearby of marigolds or alyssum.
Nothing beats cabbages as far as versatility is concerned. With ballheaded, red, green and savoy, they have so many uses in the kitchen both in cooking and salads, making them the perfect home-grown crop.
Several sowings will give you cabbage all year round
Sow Indoors: February-April thinly ½in (1cm) deep in clean trays or modules of firm pre watered compost. Keep soil moist at all times.
Sow Outdoors: April-September thinly ½in (1cm) deep in a seed bed or clean module trays of firm pre watered compost. Keep soil moist at all times. Protect from frost.

Plant Out: March-October into the required harvest position 12in (30cm) apart with 12in (30cm) between each row when plants have 3-4 true leaves.

Protect from Cabbage White Butterfly with netting.
Just 5 star service and quality
Good germination though had some problems with lack of rain and caterpillars. Growth was slow.
Too early to say as I've only just sown them!
