Cabbage - Patta Gobhee

Cabbage is a fairly easy plant to grow because it is a hardy vegetable.

Propagation

Propagate by seed. Seeds, which germinate within four to seven days, can be started indoors in April and transplanted after about a month of indoor growth.

Transplant the young plants to their final growing position when plants have five or six true leaves, setting the lowest leaves at ground level. Water well the day before moving, firm in well after transplanting and ‘puddle’ in the plants with plenty of water (this means filling the hole with water several times before adding soil).

How to Grow in Pots

Make sure to sow the cabbage seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep. After you sow them, keep them moist and thin them out to desired spacing once they grow. Make sure you fertilize your plants when growing cabbage, especially after transplanting. Then add nitrogen or organic fertilizer as well when the cabbage is half grown. This helps them mature better. Make sure the soil is moist throughout the growing season so your cabbage produces better heads.

Soil

Cabbage grows best in soil with a lot of organic matter, so mix in a 2-3” (5-8cm) layer of good garden compost or composted manure when you prepare the bed.Growing cabbage pulls a lot of nitrogen from the soil, so build organic fertilizers into the soil when you plant. Cabbage thrives in a pH range of 6.5-7

Spacing 

When growing cabbage, be sure to space the plants 12 to 24 inches apart and keep the rows 12 to 30 inches apart.. The closer you space your cabbage plants, the smaller the head of the cabbage will be. Early varieties of cabbage can be planted 12 inches apart 

Sowing Season
Cabbage is a cool-season vegetable that performs best  in winters . Can be grown round the year except summer

Harvesting

It takes about 95 days for cabbage to reach maturity. Harvest your cabbage when it is firm and before the heads split.
Cabbages are harvested by cutting through the stem just above ground level with a sharp knife. Cut a 1cm (½in) deep cross in the stump of spring and summer cabbages and you'll be rewarded with a second crop of much smaller cabbages.

Pests and Diseases

A lot of pests and diseases can ravage your cabbage plants. Pests include cabbage worms, cabbage loopers, midges, flies, aphids and many more. Diseases are caused by fungi, bacteria and viruses
