Planting: Cabbage will produce sizable heads in most soil types as long as it's well prepared. It can be direct seeded, but is most commonly handled as a transplant. Sow seeds indoors at 70F about 2 weeks before last frost date, and grow for 3-4 weeks for spring plantings/summer harvest. Early summer plantings will mature in cool fall weather. Best if planted to not mature in the heat of summer, as too much heat makes the cabbage strong tasting or even harms the plants.
