For fall harvest, transplant 17 weeks before first frost, without additional protection. In a hoophouse, you can plant 2-3 weeks later. Sensitive to heat and standing water. Use floating row covers for the first 4-6 weeks for cabbage root maggot. Mulch in summer to keep plants cool and moist in heat. Fall planted crops develop best flavor after light frost.
