The Q&A Archives: Flowering Cabbagew

Question: how long can i keep the flowering cabbage and can you keep
it inside during the winter months?

Answer: Flowering cabbages are similar to garden cabbages as far as care and keeping. In the garden it does well in a rich soil that is moist yet well drained, and it needs a sunny location. It also prefers cool weather and will stay in good condition into the twenties. Eventually if will look a bit worse for wear and that is one of the reasons it is considered a "seasonal bedding" plant. If you cut it, or bring the container indoors, it will not keep very long. For best results, keep it as cool as possible.
