A Guide to Growing Cabbages

Mix one wheelbarrow of soil to another of decomposed manure. Mix 50g of DAP in that mixture in order to enhance root establishment. Fill the mixture in pots and put one seed per pot. Arrange the pots in order and cover them with grass. Water every morning. Remove the grass after a week or upon germination. Spray the seedlings with a mixture of 1ml of cypermethrin and 5g of mancozeb with a  1litre sprayer. Spraying is done once per week in order to protect the seedlings from fungal diseases and pests. Seedlings are ready for transplanting after three weeks. Transplanting in the evening is ideal in order to avoid the hot temperatures of the afternoon.
