How to Sow Giant Chinese Michihili Cabbage Seeds

Welcome to the world of growing your very own Giant Chinese Michihili cabbage! This incredible variety of Chinese cabbage boasts impressive size and flavor. Below, we’ll guide you through the process step by step, from sowing to harvest

How to Grow Giant Chinese Michihili Cabbage from Seed

  • Soil Preparation: Start by choosing a sunny location in your garden with well-draining soil. Work in some compost to improve soil structure and fertility. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level
  • Seed Sowing Advice: Sow your Giant Chinese Cabbage seeds thinly in rows that are 2 feet apart. Gently cover the seeds with about 1/4 inch of soil. Remember, these seeds are your future cabbage stars, so treat them with care
  • Germination and Temperature: Patience is key! Germination typically takes 5 to 10 days, influenced by soil quality and temperature. Maintain a soil temperature between 70°F to 75°F (21°C to 24°C) for optimal germination. You can use a heat mat to help regulate temperature
  • Seed Spacing: Once your seedlings reach 2 to 3 inches in height, thin or transplant them. Space the plants about 18 inches apart for robust growth. Alternatively, if you’re short on space, you can opt for a closer spacing of 9 to 12 inches and enjoy harvesting alternate plants while they’re still young and tender
  • Thinning: Thinning is important to provide adequate space for each plant to develop fully. Remove the weaker seedlings, leaving behind the healthiest and most vigorous ones. This step ensures your cabbages have the room they need to reach their giant potential

How to Care for Giant Chinese Michihili Cabbage Seeds

  • Maintenance: Water your plants consistently, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilize every 3-4 weeks with a balanced fertilizer to support healthy growth
  • Germination and Maturity: Watch in awe as your Giant Chinese Cabbage plants emerge and flourish. Once they reach maturity, usually around 75 to 85 days after sowing, you’ll be ready to enjoy the bountiful harvest
  • Common Pests and Diseases: Keep an eye out for common pests like aphids and cabbage worms. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil to manage these unwelcome visitors. To prevent diseases, avoid overhead watering, and provide good air circulation around the plants
