Growing Cabbage in North Florida

Anonymous added on February 24, 2014 | Answered

My son is in third grade and growing a cabbage as part of a project for science. The supplier of Bonnie growers gave each of the children a plant to start in the garden. We have had our plant for two weeks. We prepared a spot for the plant and placed it in the ground. The area was fertilized with cow manure. It looked a little dry this morning, so it was watered with a drip hose for quite a while. However, this afternoon the plant appears to be a little over watered. The leaves are a bit droppy. What should we do to help the plant? Would it better to put the plant in a large pot as opposed to the ground with Miracle Grow? The area in which the garden is located is an area that receives a lot of afternoon sun.
