Information about growing Chinese baby cabbage

Both types of Chinese cabbage are fast-growing, with babies maturing in about 40 days and normal sized Chinese cabbage in about 50 days. It grows best in cool, short autumn and early spring weather.

Prepare a sunny spot in the garden for planting in early spring or fall. Put one inch of compost in the first 6 cm of soil. Smooth the soil with a garden rake.

Sow the seeds directly at a distance of 5 cm. (2 cm) and at a depth of 0.6 cm. (¼). Water the seeds well and keep the seeded area moist.

Seedlings should appear in about a week and should be thinned at a distance of 4-6 cm (10-15 cm) when they are a few cm (7.5 cm) high.

Fertilize Chinese cabbage 3 weeks after sowing. Keep the planting area constantly moist and free of weeds.

Dwarf Chinese cabbage is ready to harvest when it is about 6 cm (15 cm) tall. Cut off the entire head just above the ground for dwarf varieties or for normal sized varieties, remove the outer leaves and allow the rest of the plant to grow to maturity.
