    Are they still baby cabbages? I grow cabbages outside, they like a firm soil and a decent amount of water.

    I'm wondering whether they're too warm - the weather is still mild.  What type of cabbages are they?

    I'd have them outside in a well - ventilated cold frame at the moment, bringing them in when the cold weather starts, and I'd cut back on the watering too.  They shouldn't need a lot of water while they're only little.
