    Default Cabbage seeds

    I have finally found Christmas Drumhead Cabbage after years of searching for it. Some guy down Kent has a nursery and he grows them so I have ordered some from him. 10 plug plants for 1.99.

    My question is...has anyone ever grown seeds from there cabbages?

    I've left some to self seed - and they have. If there are other brassicas in flower at the same time they would probably cross-pollinate and the seeds would not be "pure".

    I only want seeds from this plant so I would harvest the others before then and keep these just in the ground. Thanks VC.
