Brassicas require a fertile well drained soil in partial shade that has been well dug in autumn they do not grow well in acidic soil so adding lime to the soil may be necessary.
Sow indoors from March onwards onto moist compost when the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant to individual pots to grow on.
When they have around 5 leaves harden off and transplant to their final growing position spacing the plants around 60cm apart and 30cm between rows treading the plants in well.
Water well before transplanting and during any dry spells. 
Alternatively sow outdoors from march in a seed bed sowing in drills 1.25cm deep thin the seedlings eventually spacing the plants 60cm apart and 30cm between rows plant in their final planting position treading the plants in well.
Water well before transplanting and ensure the plants are kept well watered during warm weather.
