EVERLASTING CABBAGE CUTTINGS ROOTING WELL IN GREENHOUSE – 3rd wk Dec 2013

The perennial ‘everlasting cabbage’ bush in Balbriggan was thriving when we left to move to Tacumshin in South Wexford. The new owners will not miss the few cuttings from the large cabbage bush. Those cuttings have been tidied up and potted up. They are now on a bright shelf in the greenhouse, protected from the recent gales here. They seem to be taking root

The trusty 'Morris Minor' of my kitchen garden, the perennial 'everlasting cabbage', venerable and happily growing anew from cuttings.

and growing, if only slowly, given the low light levels in mid-winter. Come a milder spring, they will be planted outside in the new brassica patch with enviromesh on standby to protect the tender young leaves from the caterpillars of cabbage white butterflies.
