 B. Oleracea

 I do grow some 'normal' vegetables and this is one, because a lot of people like a cabbage that is 'standard'. Vertus is a savoy cabbage (it has finely crinkled leaves) and is one of the best for making coleslaw.

 If you want a standard cabbage that will do everything you want, this is it - grows well, tender, mild.

 

When to sow: Mid to late summer. Sow into punnets or trays and transplant when they are big enough to handle easily.

Uses: Steam, coleslaw - there are heaps of cabbage recipes online.

 

Growing Conditions: Good, well manured soil. Water regularly when it is dry.
