Don't know many nurseries in London, but OH and I used to walk past  Worlds End Nursery in Chelsea and frequently took a detour inside and were very impressed by the range of plants - I guess that if you contacted them for advice they'd have something that your girlfriend would really love http://www.worldsendnurseries.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=59 

Good luck

At the moment, when I cut a couple of lettuces for supper I chop up the outside leaves and put them in a heap on the edge of the purple sprouting broccoli bed - the slugs seem to prefer the lettuce to the broccoli .............. so far 

Scarifying

If it's not been treated with a Moss Killer then pop it somewhere dry, and in the spring bundle it up or put it in a wire mesh cage like you get to put bird fat cakes in and hang in your garden in the very early spring  - the birds will come and get it to build their nests

It's probably down to variety.  Which cabbage are you growing?
