(B. oleracea) Cabbage does best in a long season of mild weather, but it is also very hardy and may be grown to mature in the cool weather of late autumn. Spring plantings are best started indoors and transplanted out about the time of last frost; summer plantings may be seeded right in the garden. We recommend early varieties for spring planting, longer-season, large-heading varieties for a fall crop.
