How to Sow:
To avoid danger of clubroot, grow your brassicas (cabbages, sprouts, cauliflowers, etc) on a different site each year.
Sow seeds July to August for overwintering or in spring for summer cutting. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 23cm (9in) apart in soil raked to a fine tilth and which contains plenty of compost or manure. It may also be beneficial to rake in 100g/sq.m (3oz/sq yd) of a balanced fertiliser.
Transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle, spacing by 3-38cm (12-15in) each way or at 1cm (4in) apart for 'spring greens'.
Water regularly, especially in dry periods. Hoe between plants as required.
