If you plan to maintain your garden without the help of a professional, Red cabbage needs well-fertilized soil and sufficient humidity to grow. It is a seasonal plant which is seeded in spring and harvested in late fall.
Red cabbage prefers climates that remain moist and cool, so they can be placed in the ground shortly after the last frost. Cabbage plants can be spaced about 12-26 inches from one another and will need watering often.
Red cabbage is not necessarily ready to harvest when the head is formed. You can test the heads by squeezing them. A head that looks solid and ready may still be flimsy and loose-leafed on the inside. Only when it feels firm would you cut the head from the base of the plant.
