Plant a few cabbage seeds every week during the growing season to ensure a continuous supply.  Cabbages prefer a neutral pH between 6.5 and 7.0 so add lime prior to sowing if your soil is acidic.  Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure and compost into the soil and allow a few weeks for it to fully break down prior to planting.  Mound soil around the lower stem to support any cabbage plants that are leggy.  Keep an eye out for aphids and cabbage white caterpillars as your cabbages are growing.  Cabbage white caterpillars can be removed by hand and fed to birds and aphid numbers can be reduced by planting flowers such as marigolds around the crop which are attractive to aphid predators.  Water cabbages regularly or quality of heads will suffer, avoid wetting leaves if possible.

When To Sow

In colder regions of Australia sow cabbage seeds from September to November, in temperate regions sow from March to October and in subtropical areas of Australia sow from April to September.  Cabbages will struggle in the tropics but you may have some success sowing from April to August during the dry season.
