Here is some information on starting Cabbage plants from seed? First as always you should have clean sterilized seed flats to start your cabbage seeds in. And also as always you should have a soilless mix to start your cabbage plants in. What you would look for is to buy a soilless mixture that is for germinating seeds. Then you will fill your seed flat half full with germination mix after that soak your flats and let then drain over night.

Here is some early Cabbage varieties that you should try.

Late Cabbage

Flat Head Dutch

Hybrid Savoy Cabbage

All of these Cabbage Types are easy to start from seed.

You don't need to start Cabbage all at once you can sow the seed over many times during the growing season. What you do is take your seed flat that you fill half with germination mixture and you soaked the entire seed flat that haves the germination mixture in and you let it drain before you start to plant it. Take a packet of what kind of Cabbage seeds that you have to sow and open the packet and start to sow the seeds after you sow the seeds than cover the seeds with about a fourth of a inch in germination mix.

Then go back and mist the entire seed flat. Either put the flat on a bench in the greenhouse or put the flat on a propagating mat and a grow light in your House.
