Cabbage Brunswick is a large drumhead-type, winter cabbage. Introduced in Germany in 1924 this reliable old heritage variety has been grown in home gardens and commercially ever since.
It is a solid white globe shaped cabbage that produces good, hard heads that can grow to around 25cm (10in) in diameter and average 5 kg (12lbs) in weight.
This fine flavoured, popular variety matures in about 90 days. It is cold hardy and drought tolerant and perfect for autumn-winter harvesting.
Brunswick can be sown early and be grown to huge proportions. It can be sown successionally and grown year round but is more usually sown in March to May for harvesting August to October. It can be used in soups or stews, made into sauerkraut or coleslaw.
Prepare the site:
All brassica crops grow best in partial-shade, in firm, fertile, free-draining soil. Start digging over your soil as soon as you can brave the elements. Remove any stones you find and work in plenty of well-rotted manure or compost. Tread on the soil to remove air pockets and to make the surface firm. Brassicas will fail if the soil is too acidic; add lime to the soil if necessary, aiming for a pH of 6.5 to 7.5.
Sowing: March to May
Nearly all brassicas should be planted in a seedbed or in modules under glass and then transferred. Seeds should be sown thinly, as this reduces the amount of future thinning necessary and potential risk from pests.
Sow seeds 1.25cm (½in) deep and space 15 to 20cm (6 to 8in) between rows.
Once the seeds have germinated, thin the seedlings to 7.5cm (3in) between each plant. After germination, seedlings will often be ‘leggy’, so plant them as deep as possible to really anchor them into the soil.
