Certainly good advice, but if you still need to adjust your Scribus table, this also works:

1. Don't ungroup the table, but select one grouped cell in the column you want to adjust by double-clicking in it.

2. Change the width for that cell in the Properties Palette. This will force the entire column to the new width.

You can also adjust row height using the same method.
