Cultivation and care
The yield of vegetables with the seedling method of cultivation depends on the fertility of the soil and the climatic characteristics of the regions.

Sowing seeds of late cabbage begins in May, at this time of the year the earth is already warm enough and You can not use the film to cover the seedlings. Before sowing, the seeds are soaked in moist tissue for a day at a temperature of 20 ° C.

3-4 pcs are sown in each hole. seeds to a depth of 1-2 cm.
After about a week, when it is already possible to identify where the seedlings are good and where the weak ones and small, thin out plants. Leave one strong seedling.
Watering and loosening
Moderate watering and regular cultivation are the key to a rich harvest. Before each irrigation, the soil is loosened, thus providing free access of air and water to the root system. It is important that the earth does not dry out and is not excessively wet. Normal soil moisture is 70%.
The plants need fertilizing. The first is carried out 2 weeks after the emergence of seedlings, the second – during the appearance of the ovary of the head of cabbage. As a fertilizer, preparations based on potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen are used.
