Cabbage Heads Not Forming

Anonymous added on November 14, 2011 | Answered

I am in Okeechobee, Florida. I planted my cabbage in September when it was hot. It usually cools off in October, but it didn't. The cabbage plants have very big green leaves on them but they will not form heads. I cut the bottom leaves off of one of the plants but it didn't help. Can you help me?

They need cool weather in order to form heads. You can help keep them "cool" by placing mulch around the base to regulate the soil temperature. This article will also help:
