About Savoy Cabbage: Savoy cabbages originated in the Savoy region, an ancient duchy in the heart of the Alps and on the borders of Italy, France, and Switzerland. The earliest records date this distinctive variety of cabbage back to the 1500s. This type of cabbage is an essential ingredient in traditional Italian minestrone.
Savoy Cabbage Germination: Start your 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 Savoy Cabbage Seeds: If hard frosts come, cover the young plants. Mulch around them to regulate soil temperature, and keep the soil moisture even to prevent the cabbages from splitting.
Harvesting Savoy Cabbage: Harvest the cabbages as soon as feel firm and reach a good size. For freshest taste, use Savoy cabbages within one week of harvesting them.
