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.

First

seaweed.

Second.

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

Third

Cabbage collars

Fourth

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.

I have been sowing seeds now for the last two weeks.

All of which are annuals.

Dahlias

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.

BQ

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.
