Growing savoy cabbage is similar to growing any other cabbage. Both are cold hardy, but savoy is by far the most cold hardy of the cabbages. Plan to set out new plants in the spring early enough so they can mature before the heat of summer. Sow seeds 4 weeks before the last frost for plants to be transplanted in June and plant fall cabbage 6-8 weeks before the first frost of your area. Allow the plants to harden and acclimate to the colder temps before transplanting. Transplant the savoy, allowing 2 feet between rows and 15-18 inches between plants in a site with at least 6 hours of sun. The soil should have a pH of between 6.5 and 6.8, be moist, well-draining and rich in organic matter for the most optimal conditions when growing savoy cabbage. If you start with these requirements, caring for savoy cabbage is fairly labor free. When caring for savoy cabbage, it’s a good idea to mulch with compost, finely ground leaves or bark to keep the soil cool, moist and retard leaves. Keep the plants consistently moist so they don’t stress out; apply 1- 1 ½ inch of water per week depending upon rainfall. Fertilize the plants with a liquid fertilizer, such as fish emulsion, or 20-20-20 once they develop new leaves, and again when the heads begin to form.
