Product Description

Offenham 2 flower of spring cabbage seed by Mr. Fothergill’s. Solid, tasty green heads. For spring or autumn cropping of, hearted or ‘greens’. An old favourite producing solid, pointed, tasty green heads. Useful Information: Vitamin C Sow and Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly, March-May, in a seed bed, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 45 cm (18-inch) apart, when plants are about 10 cm (4-inch) tall. Allow 45 cm (18-inch) between rows. Plant firmly and water well. Or sow indoors, March-May, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5 cm (2-inch) apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, May-July, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest: July-August sowings as ‘greens’ in February or March, or hearted from April -May. Harvest March-May sowings as ‘greens’ from September to November. Hints and Tips: Apply a high nitrogen fertiliser in early spring to give overwintered plants a welcome boost. Eat the outer, dark green leaves, as these have the most nutrients.

    These were extremely easy to grow and very quick to develop. I ended up with a glut but my chickens love them as much as I do.
