Red cabbage: Red Acre (Brassica Oleracea)

$4.60 inc GST

Contains approx 200 seeds

 This early round head cabbage is easily grown and versatile in use.
Heads weight 1.6-1.8kg, 15 to 18cm in diameter on compact plants. Its
firm, medium red head is excellent cooked or raw in stews and salads.

They will grow in a wide range of conditions but must have soil enriched
with stable or poultry manure for best results. The garden should be
located in an open, sunny and well drained position. As cabbages
prefer soil which is only slightly acid apply a dressing of lime at a rate
of 120g per square metre.

An application of Sulphate of Ammonia as a side dressing when they
commence to form heads will be beneficial.

Dust regularly with Derris or Cabbage dust to control White Cabbage
Butterfly and aphids.
