    Brassica oleracea

    Min Qty: 4 g

    Description:  Originally from England in the early 1800s, and brought to America around mid-century, the early variety produces smaller heads, 2-3 pounds each, but a very healthy yield. The tight heads and pointy shape allow tight spacing.  Good choice for container gardening.

    Planting Instructions:   63 days. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Sow 1/4-1/2" deep into a starting mix.  Keep evenly moist until germination.  Provide plenty of light after the seedlings emerge.  Transplant into well-worked soil after the danger of frost has passed.  Space plants about 12" apart in rows 18-36" apart in a location that gets plenty of sun.  Mulch around plants to retain moisture and even out temperature extremes. Direct seed in mid-summer for a fall harvest.
