Growing Cabbage on terrace

Cabbage is one of the most popular winter vegetables grown in India. Cabbage is used as salad,  and dehydrated vegetable as well as in cooked curries. Cabbage is rich in minerals and vitamins A, B1, B2 and C.

Keep the soil uniformly moist and Keep the soil moist by watering every other day. Place the containers in a spot that gets as much sun as possible.

Fertilizing and watering cabbage plants is important just like cauliflower.  

Plant uses water to absorb the nutrients from the soil. Additionally, cabbage has a high water content, so without enough water, the heads will dry out, crack and become bitter.

Cauliflower is considered to be a cool season crop, and it grows best in a comparatively cool temperature with a moist atmosphere.On my roof top it was little challenging to place it since it needs sunlight and has to be kept cool as well.

I bought two different variety of  Cauliflower saplings. This is second time I am trying to grow Cauliflower.

Tips: Make sure that the soil should not be allowed to get dried and Hard. Also excess water would decay the roots too.

If you notice the leaves of these two plant looks different. Hope could make out the difference once the cauliflower button head is visible.
