Product Description

Brassica oleracea var capitata

A unique look for vase flower with straight stems.  These are white with a pink center and can reach 25″ in height.  Ornamental cabbages need cooler temperatures.  If daytime temperatures are still more than 70°F, the unique coloring will not show up.

Germination

Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before planting outside.  Use a sterile mix and barely cover seeds as light aids in germination.  If kept between 65-70°F, germination is in 10-14 days.  Transplant into the garden 4″ apart, when seedlings have 2-3 true leaves, several weeks BEFORE your first average fall frost.  Transplanting 4″ apart promotes thin stems and lower leaf drop.

Growing

Well-drained soil is a must for ornamental cabbage.  Fertilize at the time of transplanting with a well-balanced fertilizer that also has calcium.  When plants reach 8-10,” remove the lower leaves to promote coloring on top of the plant.  Repeat 3-4 times as needed until coloring begins.  Support may be required for tall varieties.
