Savoy cabbage growing

The technology for growing Savoy cabbage seedlings is not much different from the same process for ordinary white cabbage.

Savoy cabbage growing starts with sowing seeds. If you have chosen a variety with medium and late ripeness, then start sowing in mid-April.

After the first shoots have appeared, the temperature of the seedlings should be lowered to + 8 + 10 degrees. When 1-2 true leaves appear on the sprouts, they must be cut into individual containers.

The seedlings are ready for planting in open ground 40-45 days after the emergence of shoots, at which time there are already 4-5 true leaves on each sprout.

It is recommended to grow Savoy cabbage in those beds where potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, legumes, beets, and onions grew before it. In places where turnips, radishes, radishes or any other cabbage are grown, Savoy cabbage can be planted again only after 3-4 years.

Savoy cabbage requires significant fertilization. Therefore, the soil for planting must be prepared in the fall, digging it well and adding 5-7 kg of organic fertilizers for each square meter of the garden.

When planting early varieties of Savoy cabbage in the ground early, it must be protected from the cold with a film at night. If this is not done, the seedlings are subject to shooting. It is recommended that early varieties are planted in open ground until the end of May, and mid-ripening and late-ripening varieties are planted in late June - early July.
