The second thing we planted out this weekend just gone was these, the fantastically ponce-ily named ‘Precoce de Louviers’ Pointy Spring Cabbage:
It’s French, dahling. As the name suggests it’s a Spring cabbage, so we’ve started them off now in the hope that we’ll have tasty cabbages to nom in the Springtime. They’re germinating in little pots for now until we have time to clear the spot in the allotment for them (it’s currently covered in errant raspberry canes which were utterly neglected by the previous owner).
This does go against the instructions on the packet below but I consulted Grandad’s book and it said that the cabbages would be totally happy in pots for 5 weeks. So fingers crossed for them. We’ve potted up 30.
And here they are in their little pots all crammed into a tray so we could lift them into the greenhouse. Fingers crossed they’ll germinate soon.
