Q.

removing lower leaves before cabbage matures

Zone I love close to the coast in Leland, NC. I think the zone is 8 | Anonymous added on May 12, 2016 | Answered

I have a large cabbage, beautiful leaves about 9 inches across. The cabbage has started to head and I was wondering if I can cut the lower leaves off and just let the head grow. It is only 1 cabbage and I have it in my herb bed. The large lower leaves are shading some of the herbs. It is my grandson's cabbage that he started early in the year, then transplanted to my garden. I don't want to do anything that will kill or maim the growing of the head. Thank you for your input. Martha Dyer
