Cabbage Tropic Giant lives up to its name with the absolute biggest heads of cabbage you will probably ever see, let alone grow! This is the one that wins prizes at shows bringing cries of astonishment from gardening friends. Fully one foot across and weighing around 15 pounds, these whopping heads are flattish and round, with pale green leaves well packed. Be sure to leave extra growing space between these plants, and fertilize well.
Cabbage is a cool-season crop, sown in early spring for early-summer harvest or in mid- to late summer for autumn harvest. Start indoors or direct-sow, spacing plants 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart. Before planting, prepare the soil well with fertilizer, and add a dose of ammonium nitrate about a month into the growth season. Harvest the heads when they are firm and brightly colored. Plants may form smaller side-heads after the main head is harvested.
We have put together five of what we consider to be the best selection of coloured cauliflowers as a special pack for anyone wishing to try more than one variety. Each packet contains 10 seeds of each variety and separately labelled. More information on each variety on this page. Dont' forget cauliflowers need a rich well manured soil to do well.

Pak Choi deliciously spicy, pure white celery-like stalks are topped by green leaves. Each plant will have 10-14 stalks 8” to 10” long. Excellent raw or cooked. Pak Choi can be grown all year round, however, it grows best in the spring and the autumn and must be grown in fertile moist soil. Sow outside March - August, for continuous summer salads. If you want to grow some onto maturity, use thinnings for salads, until the plants have been thinned to about 9" and you will produce some nice plants for cooking ie: stir-fry or steaming. Sow under protection Feb - early April for spring crop and August - early October for autumn/winter crop.
