I was given some seeds of giant cabbages by a friend who had a plot on our allotment site. He grew giant vegetables – cabbages, marrows, runner beans – anything and everything and had great results. I must say he pampered his veg and they paid back.
I wasn’t so dedicated. I grew the seedlings in an ordinary potting compost and then transplanted them in one of my net cages – a must on our site as the birds would eat it all. I just put some horse manure in this cage in the winter and by spring it was ready.
The cabbages grew and grew …….
and now I shall have to think of the best ways to use these beauties.
Cabbage soup, here we go…….
