 Brunswick Cabbage Seeds ( 70 days)

Introduced 1924

Large drumhead type cabbage.  This cold hardy cabbage is perfect for fall/winter growing. 

Originating in Germany this cabbage makes an excellent sauerkraut that has been used for many generations. 

Fun Fact:  Drumhead refers to the wide, flattened heads.

Excellent keeper.

Commercially grown cabbage, the stuff you buy at the store, contains pesticides such as malathion, Diazinon, Imidacloprid and  Methoxyfenozide to name a few.  Here is a list of over 50 known chemicals used in growing cabbage.  Protect your families health and grow your own!  It is the only way to be sure you are getting safe, organic and nutritionally valuable food.


$$$ Yes, the market price listed here is right.  Some heirloom seed companies offer only 50 heirloom cabbage seeds for $2.75  For one gram that is $16.50!  The same thing we sell for $1.99  I started this company to help people grow their own food.  "To promote self sufficiency through food independence."  Not to rob them of their hard earned dollar.  Farmer John

Planting Tips:

Start spring seedlings 4-5 weeks before transplanting.  Start fall transplants 2-3 months before first frost.  Transplant out to the garden when 3” tall at least 90 days before your first frost in midsummer.  When transplanting, enrich soil with a little blood and bone meal.  Needs cool temperatures to head properly – will bolt in heat.  Keeping soil evenly moist is a must for a healthy crop.

Set out your spring cabbage transplants early enough so that they can mature before the heat of summer, about 5 weeks before the last frost. For a longer cabbage harvest, plant 2 or 3 varieties with different maturities.

Soil:  Surprisingly, heirloom organic cabbage will do well on heavy clay soil, although it prefers a rich heavy loam.  It delights in copious amounts of composted manure mixed into the soil bed.  Remember not to plant cabbage seed in the same place year to year.  The soil pH should be between 6.0 and 7.5 for optimum growth and to discourage clubroot disease.

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
