90 Days. A large drumhead cabbage that is very cold hardy. A fall/winter type cabbage, it stores very well.
100 seeds per packet,Ā Ā Seeds Per Oz: 9000

Sowing:Ā Start your Brunswick cabbage seeds inside 8-12 weeks before the last spring frost, planting them in rich soil 1/2 inch deep and 2 inches apart. Because the first crop of cabbage should mature before the heat of summer, plant your seedlings about 4 weeks before the last expected frost; set them 12-18" apart in rows 3-4' apart, burying the stems about halfway up. For a fall crop, direct sow or transplant seedlings in midsummer. For companion planting benefits, plant cabbage with aromatic herbs or potatoes; avoid planting them with tomatoes or pole beans. Herbs such as thyme, peppermint, sage, and rosemary will repel the destructive white cabbage moth.

Growing:Ā If hard frosts come, cover the young plants. Mulch around them to regulate soil temperature and control weeds, and keep the soil moisture even to prevent the cabbages from splitting. If a sudden excess of moisture occurs, grasp the plant and turn it 90 degrees clockwise; this severs enough of the roots to slow down growth and prevent splitting.

Harvesting:Ā Harvest the cabbages as soon as feel firm and reach a good size. Small cabbages tend to be more tender, while large cabbages from fall growth keep well over the winter.
