Time planting so that heads form either before or after hot summer weather, using floating row covers or cold frams and quick-growing varieties for spring crops. For fall and winter harvest, the slower-growingvarieties are hardiest and hod longer without splitting. Likes cool, moist weather but heavy mulching can help (shade cloth or taller crops can help in midsummer) . Thrives in almost any kind of soil but dress well with manure before planting. Plant 18” apart for conventional row planting. Good companions are radish, lettuce, arugula or chervil which are harvested befor the cabbages become very large.
