Growing features

Landing

Cabbage can be planted as seedlings or directly by seed into the soil... Rindu seedlings are usually sown in mid-March - early April. About a month before landing in the ground. Of course, you need to take into account the specifics of your region. The seeds are placed in moist soil (greenhouse or box), after having treated it with a weak solution of potassium permanganate. Deepen the seeds no more than 1–2 cm. Before the emergence of seedlings, it is better to cover the planting with a film.

Remember to ventilate daily! After two weeks, young cabbage can be planted in separate containers. Planting in a permanent place begins after the appearance of 3-4 true leaves. Cabbage is not afraid of lower temperatures. More dangerous for seedlings is drying out of the soil and lack of light.

When sowing seeds into the soil, the dates are shifted to April - May. To accelerate growth, you can use the planting under the half of a plastic bottle, which plays the role of a mini greenhouse. In this case, 4-5 seeds are sown in the hole. After the emergence of shoots, one of the strongest plants is left, the rest are removed carefully, without damaging the roots of the main one.

A place

It is advisable to take a flat bed under the cabbage... A very important point - avoid shaded areas!

The soil

The soil does not require special preparation. Digging and adding humus is enough. A small amount of sifted ash can be added for early pest control and additional nutrition. Cabbage prefers neutral soil acidity.

It is good to plant cabbage after onions, garlic, potatoes, legumes, zucchini... Poor predecessors are all cruciferous.

Stocking density

When planting seedlings, keep in mind that the distance should be sufficient for the development of an adult plant (from 40 to 60 cm)!

Temperature

The optimum temperature for seedlings is about 20-22 degrees, then you can lower it to 10 degrees.

Disembarkation

It is better to transplant cabbage to a permanent place in cloudy weather, or in the eveningto avoid wilting of immature plants. If this is not possible, shade the landings with paper or covering material.

Attention: The main task is to protect from the sun's rays, and not to create a "bath"! The seedlings must have access to air, otherwise the plants will burn!

Watering

Cabbage is a moisture-loving plant... It is better to water it at the root at the rate of 1 liter per plant (at least 2-3 times a week). The lack of moisture is easy to notice - the leaves of the plant are drooping and flabby. If the cabbage looks juicy and vigorous, watering can be safely postponed.

Measures to increase the yield

Loosening has a beneficial effect on the yield (at least 1 time per week). It is impossible to allow the formation of a crust on the surface of the earth after watering, this complicates the access of oxygen to the roots.

If necessary (if the plants are frail, pale, stretched out), you can feed with a solution of mullein, urea or ammonium nitrate.

Hilling plants is recommended to be carried out 2 times a season.... The first time - 2 weeks after disembarkation, the second - two months later.

Harvesting

Rinda F1 cabbage ripens in late August - early September. Cleaning is best done on days when rain is not expected. The heads of cabbage are cut with a knife, the excess leaves are removed and sent for storage.

Storage

This variety is usually used for fermentation. If you are not satisfied with this option, then Rinda can be stored in the basement.

One of the storage options is hanging. In this case, the cabbage is not cut, but is pulled out together with the root, behind which the heads of cabbage are placed further. Dirt and excess soil must be removed; this method increases the storage time.

Optimum storage conditions for cabbage:

  • Air temperature: 0 +2 degrees.
  • Humidity: about 80%.
  • Regular airing.

Diseases and pests - prevention and control

Rinda is resistant to diseases, but Fitosporin can be used for prophylactic purposes.... It can be used both for seedlings and for adult plants.

If your cabbage still has a disease, then you should first determine it.

The most dangerous diseases

  1. Blackleg... A disease in which fungi infect the root of the stem. The disease leads to the death of the plant. If infected cabbage is found, it should be removed immediately and preferably burned. When damaged by a black leg, the leaves of a plant often acquire a pink or purple hue, become lethargic. The stalk at the site of the lesion becomes thinner, as if it is squeezed. For prevention, use the previously mentioned Fitosporin.
  2. Keela... The keel fungus settles on the roots - whitish putrefactive thickenings. Outwardly, it manifests itself in the underdevelopment of the heads of cabbage, the leaves can turn yellow and wither. The disease is not cured. The affected plants must be destroyed, the soil must be shed with a strong infusion of potassium permanganate. In the spring, before sowing seeds or seedlings, treat the ground with a 3% solution of Bordeaux liquid.
  3. Downy mildew... Yellowish or grayish spots appear on the leaves. Gradually, the affected leaves die off. Fitosporin will help here too!

The main pests

Cabbage is very fond of garden pests. Consider how they are dangerous and how to deal with them.

  1. Aphid... Clusters of these small insects, gray or green in color, are easy to spot on the back of the leaf. Aphids are dangerous because they draw juice from the plant. At the same time, the leaves are deformed and curled.
  2. Cruciferous flea... Dangerous for the entire cruciferous family. Especially for young seedlings! It is able to completely destroy the plant in a couple of days. The first signs are small holes in the leaves. The pests themselves: black bugs, jumping like real fleas.
  3. Scoop... Butterfly caterpillars are dangerous. Damages the head of cabbage to the very center, making it unusable for storage.
  4. Cruciferous bug... A beetle of bright colors (black pattern on a red or yellow background). Both bugs and their larvae are dangerous. The methods of dealing with these pests are the same - you need to treat the plants with an insecticide! It is recommended to carry out 2-3 treatments with a break of 1-2 weeks at the first manifestation of pests. For example, Fitoverm - it is low-toxic and safe. Dilute the drug at the rate of 4 ml per 1 liter of water.

  • Planting unloved pests of plants next to cabbage can help. It is good to combine planting cabbage with garlic, coriander or onions.
  • You can drive off the cruciferous flea by decorating cabbage beds with marigold, nasturtium and calendula flowers.
  • You can dust Rinda leaves with a mixture of tobacco dust and ash.
