Cabbage 'Red Mini'

cabbage-red-mini

A favourite early red cabbage, with tightly wrapped heads, and vibrant plum colour. Red Mini is crisp and pleasantly peppery in taste, and delicious cooked or chopped raw for salads and slaws.
If closely planted, they will produce petite single-serve red cabbages.

Position

Full Sun.

Sow

For best results sow into trays of Yates® Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist. Transplant when large enough to handle (4-6 weeks).

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Prior to planting, work in Yates® Thrive® Natural Blood & Bone. Apply Yates® Thrive® Natural Fish Blood & Bone for rapid, vigorous growth. Protect from snails and slugs. Control leaf-eating caterpillars with Yates® Success® Ultra.

Hints

Make successive sowings every few weeks, for a continuous harvest. Add Yates® Thrive® Natural Garden Lime to acid soils.
