Cabbage Cone Shaped Mini ‘Caraflex’ F1
Caraflex is one of the best flavoured cabbages I’ve ever eaten. This cone shaped cabbage has tender sweet leaves which can be used in salads, coleslaw or cooked. It did well from a late winter planting for a spring crop as well as a summer planting for an autumn and winter crop. Holds well in the garden without splitting. A spacing of 30cm by 40cm.
When to sow: Late-winter, spring or late summer
Where to sow: Seed tray, pots or in a garden seed bed
Depth to sow:1/2cm
Aspect: Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.
Soil: Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add lime if soil is too acid.
Spacing: Between plants 30cm; Between rows 30cm
Directions: If grown under cover when the first two true leaves appear harden the seedlings off by taking them outside on a cool cloudy day. Keep watered. When the seedlings are 6-8cm tall plant in the garden. First remove the seed leaves (cotyledons) and plant up to the first set of true leaves. Water in. If seed is planted in outside seed beds transplant when seedlings are 6-8cm tall.
