Cabbage 'January King', although a French heirloom, is also considered to be a traditional British cabbage and one of the best varieties for winter use. They are well adapted, withstanding frost and winter rain and remain crisp and crunchy with excellent colour.

Known as 'Chou de Milan de Pontoise' in France and cultivated in England since 1867, it is one of the hardiest cabbages available. From November to January it produce heads that have a good sweet flavour and crisp crunchy texture. It is a distinct type of cabbage with the characteristic conifer-blue leaf colour, the outer leaves of the heart have a red tinge and the leaves have light blistering like a Savoy.

    Germination; Prepare soil in final planting location, incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter and dig over. Best done a couple months before sowing. Soil must not be acidic. Sow in seed bed or indoors 12mm deep, 15cm apart into moist well-drained soil. Germination takes 4-7 days. Once germinated grow on in cooler conditions. In July, once large enough to handle, move to final position with 30cm spacing. Plant 2cm deeper than they were in the nursery bed to help the plant withstand winter weather.

    Growing; Cover young crop with fleece or netting to prevent bird or insect attack. Water thoroughly after planting. Feed if desired with a high nitrogen fertiliser. Weed as required.

    Cultivation; Harvest once the Cabbage head has matured. Cut with a sharp knife close to ground level, a secondary crop of small Cabbages may appear from the cut surface.
