Spring Cabbage

When is the best time to sow spring cabbage seed?

Spring cabbage seed should be sown in early July (circa Week 26) in Scotland and the north of England and about a fortnight later in the South.


My spring cabbage plants get badly damaged by birds each year, can you suggest how I might deter the birds?

The most effective way of deterring birds is to cover your plants with netting on a temporary framework.

An alternative, is to use humming tape around the plants.
