After a long summer season my yard looks rather tired. I have started to look for a quick burst of color through the use of cabbage. Cabbage has such interesting texture and colors and since they tend to be fairly large make for a wonderful color enhancement for a fall garden. The violets are great against the oranges of Marigold. In containers cabbage makes an interesting display when paired with trailing ivy.
Cabbage can be grown from seeds, but I prefer to buy mine from the local garden center. Cabbage plants tolerate light frost, but watch out for white flies.
