Whether you’re an experienced gardener or somebody who is just beginning to explore the benefits of growing and eating your own food, cabbage is a great way to go. It is a relatively easy vegetable to grow, and comes with a long list of health benefits like a high concentration of vitamin C, potassium, manganese, and iron. Early Jersey Wakefield cabbage is an excellent varietal for those looking to test out this popular leafy green.


Early Jersey Wakefield cabbage is a fairly compact cabbage, the plant will grow to about 12 to 18 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide, with a weight of 2 to 4 pounds. They should be planted about 24 inches apart.


This cabbage type matures fairly quickly, and will be ready for harvesting in about 60-75 days, or about two months after being planted—harvest them when the heads feel firm and solid. An early spring transplant will typically for harvest by early summer. After maturity, it will hold in the garden for 2-3 weeks.


Early Jersey Wakefield cabbage is susceptible to the usual pests that plague cabbage, most notably the cabbage worm. However, planting it during the early spring might enable you to harvest the crop before this really becomes an issue. If worms become an issue, simply handpick them off the plant, or use Bacillus Thuringlensis to organically control them.


This cabbage is a favorite for its pointed, dark green head, with a smooth sweet flavor. In fact, some gardeners consider it to be the best tasting of all the cabbages. It is perfect for chopping and using raw as an addition to a tossed green salad, or cooking as you would cook any of your favorite cabbage recipes.

SOWING THE SEED

Cabbage is a cool seasoned crop, which is well suited for the early Spring and early to late Autumn season. The seeds can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost, at a depth of 1/4” under topsoil. Transplant into the garden, or direct sow outdoors, when the weather is slightly cool to warm. Check below for spacing and growth habits.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Cabbage plants, as explained above, will thrive in cooler temperatures. It is recommended to place them in an area of full sunlight, with temperatures averaging around 60F to 65F. The plants will need a soil that is rich in organic matter, but also well drained. If your sowing area is filled with hard, compact soil, we recommend adding in a light compost mix to improve drainage. Water the plants daily to ensure that the soil is kept moist until germination has occurred.

GERMINATION & GROWTH

Cabbage seeds will typically take anywhere between 7 to 14 days to sprout open. The plants themselves will take up little garden space, and can be grown in rows. Each plant can be spaced about 18 to 24 inches apart from one another, in rows that are spaced about 24 to 30 inches apart. Fertilize when new leaves form, and when the heads begin to form. Harvest your Cabbage heads in roughly 75 days.
