  • Harvest from October to April

With our three winter-proof Savoy cabbages you are guaranteed a supply of fresh heads for a full seven months of the year, no matter the weather. This collection comprises; 'Tundra', 'Noelle', and 'Tourmeline'. Tundra is ready to crop from October, producing solid crisp heads, ideal for winter salads. Noelle stands well from November to March, remaining crisp, crunchy and full of flavour. Take your crop through to April with the deeply savoyed, dark green, delicious heads of Tourmeline. Height 30cm (12"). Spread 60cm (24").

Companion planting: Try growing cabbages with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.

Harvest Months
Water cabbages regularly, particularly during dry periods. Feed throughout the growing season with a high nitrogen feed. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing and bring insect larvae to the surface. Draw earth up around the base of each stem to prevent wind rock and improve the plants stability. Harvest Autumn Cabbages from late summer once the heads have matured. Culinary note: Vitamin rich cabbages are particularly high in iron and potassium, but also low in calories.

T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Gradually acclimatise cabbages to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.


Grow cabbage plants in moist, rich, well drained soil in full sun. A fertile soil is essential as cabbages require high levels of nitrogen. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Apply lime to acid soils to reduce the acidity and lessen the risk of clubroot. Plant cabbages at a distance of 50cm (20") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Place a collar around the stem of each plant to prevent cabbage root fly attacks. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
