Pruning or Trimming Cabbage Leaves

Q.  Is it okay to trim off, prune, some of the lower leaves of a cabbage
plant?

A.  Yes. Old leaves that are not healthy, and those lying on the ground can be pruned. Always remember when pruning that the leaves are the factory that produces growth in the plant, and act in the best interest of a healthy plant and maximum fruit.
