Cabbage 'Early Jersey Wakefield' (Organic)
A classic American heirloom that has been a favourite with both commercial and home gardeners since the mid 1850's. Its tight cone shaped heads make it a great space saving cabbage for smaller gardens. Can be harvested when small or left to develop into larger 2-3 kilo heads.
Cabbages need rich soil with some lime for a pH of about 7.5 and adequate water so the growth is never checked. A good cover of mulch will insulate them from hot, dry spells of weather. Their most damaging pest are the caterpillare of the white cabbage butterfly. Dipel, derris dust and pyrethrum are all effective organic controls for these voracious pests.
