Q.Cabbage Should Not Be Planted Near Strawberries. How Close Is Too Close And What Is An Acceptable Distance Between The Two?

I try to pay attention to companion planting, however there is only so much space in a garden. What is an acceptable distance for two vegetables that are not supposed to be planted next to (or near) each other. Specifically, strawberries and Cabbage.

Apparently strawberries can stunt the growth of vegetables in the brassica family because of its aggressive behavior. So, as long as you plant the cabbage far enough that the strawberries do not encroach, you should be OK.
