Growing cabbage

Posted: 27/02/2014 at 20:05

I grow alot of cabbages and what I suggest to you to get the best crop.




ground sheet of plastic with holes in to plant the cabbages.


Cabbage collars


Netting over the cabbages.

This may seem a lot of work but it is worth it.

The ground sheet I use is black in colour and I have no problems with slugs but always use slug pellets.

Not sure but I think the slugs do not like the black plastic ground sheet.

As long as you put them under cover in your greenhouse.

Some seeds need a longer growing season to get the best results.

All of which are annuals.




Begonia corns



Alot more can be sown in a green house.

Be careful where U order from

I have ordered off Thompson and Morgan and parkers and have problems with the size of the plants.

Do not use the above unless you want to repot them on for a month or two.

A new nursery has just opened down the road from where I live and it has some great mature plants which I am well happy with.

No more on line ordering for me.

Which? Compost reviews

Miracle grow potting compost.

Just got 4 bags and it is good stuff, but at £20.00 for the four and only 40lt bags a bit expensive.

My local BQ is closing half of the store and has great bargains on sale.

BQ verve compost reduced from £4.49 to £2.00, I do not like this compost but going to put it on the garden.

Trellis all reduced after I paid over £100.00 a few months ago.

It will be interesting to see what else is going to get reduced.
