Hollow cabbage heads

Cabbage (red, white, Savoy)    South east South Australia

Why were our cabbages hollow? It took them a long time to form a head, but then they flowered very quickly after forming a head, and the heads were hollow.

This is a great video series of Dr Elaine Ingham, she talks about the life in the soil and how it works. From my experience it's very easy to understand and to use which means lots of time and money saved, Here's the link to sign up: http://soilfoodwebcourse.com/reg/?p=D... Don't worry it's free!

If you have had some drastic temperature changes it might have induced flowering. The cabbage may have thought it was time to set seed so it rapidly moved through head forming stage right into flowering without forming the head properly

This is called "hollow heart" and due to low fertilizer, notably boron
