Savoy cabbages are the most cold-hardy of all, and many consider their very thin, ruffled and blistered leaves to be more delicate in flavor than ordinary cabbage. Large, medium green heads average 4-6 lbs, and are perfect for stuffing, braising and soups as well as winter salad and slaw. Takes lots of frost and snow; not as tolerant of extreme wet as others. Protect from slugs in wet weather - patrol often, use bait or edge beds with copper.
Start seeds in flats very early in Spring for early Summer harvest, or 6+ weeks before first Fall hard frost for Winter harvest. A cabbage, does best in good soil for rapid growth, best with later fertilization. Best to keep evenly moist - use mulch. Shallow cultivate for first few weeks. Savoy varieties are extra cold hardy.
