Solid, dense structure
Superb for making coleslaws, salads or steaming
Will stand outdoors over a long period
It has taken over 18 years of conventional breeding to develop a variety that can combat the devastating brassica disease Clubroot, and this superb variety is the most resistant we have ever grown on our trials. This clubroot resistant cabbage produces excellent quality, 2kg, autumn ballheads with a solid, dense structure. Cabbage 'Kilaton' is superb for making coleslaws, salads or steaming. This F1 hybrid variety will stand outdoors over a long period, and once harvested stores well without any deterioration to its delicious flavour. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (12").
T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Gradually acclimatise cabbages to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.
Grow cabbage plants in moist, rich, well drained soil in full sun. A fertile soil is essential as cabbages require high levels of nitrogen. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Apply lime to acid soils to reduce the acidity and lessen the risk of clubroot. Plant cabbages at a distance of 50cm (20”) apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Place a collar around the stem of each plant to prevent cabbage root fly attacks. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
