Cabbage Ormskirk is a Savoy type with superb winter survival an old heritage variety with compact frame with very little wastage. 0.8 - 1kg heads with a neat, attractive appearance. Dark green Savoy foliage with an attractive blue-green outer tinge leaves and a pale green centre.


‘Ormskirk’ is a very hardy winter cabbage, sown indoors or outdoors April to June it matures from November and can be harvested through to March and beyond, at a time when many other vegetables are scarce. One of the most tolerant of frosts, it will hold well in the garden for weeks, and stands well before splitting.


Sow April to end May germinates between 10 and 25°C. 

Seedlings are ready for transplanting when they have 5 or 6 leaves. Make a hole big enough to accommodate the root ball firming the soil around the plant. 


The spacing between plants depends on the end product, for compact heads space at 30cm, 45cm for large heads and only 15cm for spring cabbage to encourage the pointed conical shape.

All young seedlings and transplants should be protected from cabbage root fly. The most successful way to do this is with protective discs around the base of the stem, often called ‘collars’.


Keep young plants well watered until established and then only water during dry periods. Keep weeds under control in the beds. Earth up spring and winter cabbages in winter and firm down any which have been loosened by wind and frost. 


Cabbages like a fertile, well draining, moisture retentive, firm soil. The main crop beds should be dug over and firmed a few weeks before planting.

Spacing’s 30 x 60cm, up to 60 x 90cm.

An easy to grow and low maintenance plant that will give confidence to the first time gardener as it produces bucket loads of veg. Plant out in April - late May when the chance of frost has passed. Incorporate plenty of organic matter to feed the plant and help retain water.

As they are hungry feeders, feed them every 14 days with a potash rich fertilizer. Keep well watered but do not wet the fruit.

Harvest: Mid November to end March.



Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
