Planting Directions: Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost-soil temperature of 50°-95 °, 85 ° optimum. Sow seeds ¼” deep with 3-4 per unit/inch thinning to 1 seedling. When seeds germinate move to a cooler, well lit area to produce sturdy transplants. Harden off seedlings 7 days prior to transplanting outdoors. Plant in well prepared soil enriched with a complete garden fertilizer or rich compost as cabbage is considered a heavy feeder. Transplant outdoors when soil temperature is 60-65? Water heavily when plants are young changing to moderate after head formation. For fall crops direct sow seeds ¼” deep and 2-4” apart 12-14 weeks before first frost. Thin seedlings to 12-14” apart when 6” tall.
