Traditional cuisine is unthinkable without cabbage. Russian cabbage soup and Ukrainian borsch, sauerkraut or stewed cabbage, in a salad or cakes - it is good in any dish. And the presence of nutrients, vitamins and trace elements in its composition makes it indispensable for our diet. One of the representatives of this tasty and healthy vegetable is the cabbage variety Slava, which will be described in this article. There will also be given tips on sowing seeds, planting in the ground, caring for cabbage during the growing season, harvesting and storage.
Cabbage variety Slava: description
White cabbage Slava was bred specifically for the non-Black Earth regions of Russia, but it is also suitable for other soil and climatic zones, due to its ability to tolerate the lack of moisture.
The Slava cabbage variety, which we will describe in this article, has a high yield - you can get an average of 10 kg of yield per square meter. m. of land. This is a mid-season variety: harvesting takes place about 3.5 months after germination.
Cabbage Glory: characteristic
This vegetable has a rounded-flat or rounded shape, when ripe, it practically does not crack, it tolerates both transportation and storage. The mass of ripe head - 2-4.5 kg. The cabbage of this variety is on top of a light green color, and its inner part is light, almost white.
The cabbage variety Slava, which we are describing, has two lines:
- Slava Gribovskaya 231,
- Glory 1305.
They differ slightly in their characteristics. Slava cabbage 1305 is more productive and disease-resistant, Slava Gribovskaya 231 is not so whimsical to the composition of the soil and suffers less from lack of moisture.
Sowing seeds and seedling cultivation features
White cabbage Glory is grown seedlings and seedless method. Before sowing seeds, they must first be soaked in a solution of potassium humate - 1 g / liter. After 12 hours, the seeds should be rinsed with water and left to harden at a temperature of 2 ° C. It can be a balcony, porch or any suitable room. A day later, the seeds can be planted in the soil. If you purchased Slava seed seeds with a note that they have undergone preplant preparation, they are immediately sown in the ground.
The best time for sowing seeds is the time from the end of March, when the air temperature reaches + 12–18 ° С.
The first feeding is carried out after the two leaves are formed. In 1 liter of water it is necessary to dissolve 2 g of potassium chloride, 2 g of ammonium nitrate, 4 g of superphosphate per 1 square meter. m watering. Approximate consumption of feeding is 1 liter for 50 cabbage seedlings.
The second feeding can be done in a couple of weeks with the same composition or Kemira-Lux fertilizer.
Planting in open ground
Cabbage Glory (photo attached) grows best on slightly acidic soils.
Future cabbage beds are prepared in the fall - they are dug up and fertilized with humus or manure.
When the cabbage seedlings grow to 15 cm and will have 5 leaves (about a month from the date of sowing the seeds), the cabbage is planted in open ground. The beds must first be watered. In the wells for seedlings, it is desirable to make 1 tsp. Of urea and 2 tbsp. l superphosphate. Planting pattern 60x60 cm - the distance between the shoots for the full formation of the head is 60 cm.
Seedless landing method
In some areas of southern Russia, cabbage seeds are immediately sown in the ground to a depth of 2 cm. Shoots are thinned for the first time after the formation of the third leaf. The second time, as the sixth leaf appears, the distance between the sprouts is 60 cm. This is the so-called non-seedling method.
Young seedlings need to be protected from frost. To protect from the cold using a film or other covering material. You can also water the beds - wet soil retains heat better than dry.
Slava cabbage must be watered 6-8 times for the whole season. Watering requires a significant consumption of water - 20 l / sq. If you water more often, the heads of cabbages can crack. After each watering it is necessary to spud it.
The first feeding is made after 15 days. For fertilizer you need to add a mug of a mullein to 10 liters of water, leave for a week. This amount should be enough for five cabbage bushes.
With the beginning of the formation of heads should be re-feeding, adding to the composition of wood ash. After three weeks, repeat the procedure.
Diseases and pests
Cabbage Glory (characteristic of the variety listed above) is different in that it is resistant to pest and disease. For the prevention or treatment of plants treated with pesticides and fungicides:
- Rizoplan preparations are used for root rot,
- with a black leg, cabbage is sprayed with “Fitoflavin”, “Baktofit” or “Planriz”,
- To combat black spot (Alternaria), it is necessary to promptly remove plant debris and weeds from the site,
- in the fight against downy mildew (peronosporaz) will help the solution "Topaz",
- in case of vascular bacteriosis, cabbage is treated with the help of “Trikhodermin” or “Planriz”,
- any insecticidal agent - “Karate”, “Zolon”, “Sherpa”, “Volaton”, or “Sumialfa” will help to attack the cabbage of slugs or aphids.
Harvesting and storage
Ripe cabbage starts to cut from the end of July. Harvesting occurs gradually as it ripens and can take from 15 to 20 days.
Cut the cabbage dried, remove the damaged leaves. Vegetables are cleaned in the cellar for storage. The cellar should be dry, its walls and ceiling should be treated with antiseptic to prevent the formation of fungus or mold. For this, lime or copper sulphate is best suited.
Storage should be selected medium head with no damage or cracks. There are several ways to store cabbage in the cellar: hang it from the ceiling, stack it on a wooden stand in a staggered manner in the form of a pyramid, wrap each forks with cling film or paper (not newsprint), in boxes with openings.
For good preservation of the harvest in the cellar, it is necessary to maintain the temperature close to 0 ° C, and the humidity should be high enough - 90-95%.
Cabbage Glory (photo attached) is well transported, has a good presentation. If you chose white cabbage of this variety for your vegetable garden, then with proper care for it, you are guaranteed to get an excellent harvest that can be stored until January and delight with its wonderful taste.
Description and characteristics of the Glory variety
Slava is one of the oldest, mid-season varieties of white cabbage. The plant was obtained in the last century, in the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of vegetable breeding. The author was EM Popov, who, when crossing foreign specimens, derived two subspecies of the Glory variety: Gribovsky 231 and 1305. In 1940, these varieties were zoned to all regions of Russia, where, thanks to their positive qualities, they became very popular.
The general characteristics of this variety are in density, juiciness and yield. Heads of attractive rounded or slightly flattened shape. The outer leaves are light green in color, with a slight wax coating, wavy on the edge. The internal structure of the forks consists of crisp white leaves. Each subspecies is perfectly used both in fresh form and in processing. They differ only in the following indicators:
- Gribovsky 231. The ripening period of this subspecies falls on 100 - 110 days, after germination. The average weight of the plug is about 3 kg. Yield from 1 square. m. comes to 9 - 10 kg.
- Glory 1305 Forks of this variety are formed 2 weeks later than their subspecies. However, their weight is about - 9 kg. Productivity is also higher and reaches up to 12 kg. from 1 square. m. But it is worth noting that the forks of Glory 1305 are less dense and stored worse.
Cabbage of this variety is also famous for its taste and healthy properties. Its fruits contain a large amount of vitamins and minerals.
The advantages and disadvantages of the variety
Initially, breeders tried to bring out vegetable crops for the regions of Russia where non-black earth soil predominates. But thanks to the endowed qualities, the vegetable is cultivated in all regions of the Russian Federation. We give a description of the main advantages of the variety:
- frost resistance
- consumer qualities
- unpretentiousness to the soil,
- cracking resistance,
- good transportability.
Despite such a mass of positive qualities, the plant still has its drawbacks. The negative qualities include: instability to the root keel and not a long shelf life of fruits.Cabbage Glory is ideal for salting
Terms of planting seedlings
Grow cabbage Glory can be seedlings and seedless way. In the first case, the seeds of the plant are sown in boxes in early April. To implement the seedless method, seeds are planted in open ground in the third decade of April.
Regardless of which method is chosen, it is recommended that the seed be prepared before planting. It is carried out according to the following scheme:
- For 10–15 minutes, the seeds of the plant are placed in water at a temperature of 55–60 ° C.
- Then, they descend into cold moisture for 1 minute.
- Next, the seeds are filled for 12 hours with a solution prepared from 10 liters of water and 12 oz. potassium humate.
- After this time, they should be dried and placed in a cool place, a temperature of 1 - 2 ° C.
After a day they are ready for planting.
As a rule, cabbage Glory is more often planted in a seedling manner. To do this, prepared boxes, a depth of 5 - 6 cm poured the ground. Well rammed, it is disinfected with a manganese solution. After 3 days, in the boxes at a distance of 3 cm. Grooves are made, 1 cm deep. Next, in 1 cm increments, seeds are sown, which need to be sprinkled with earth and watered by the drip method. Then, before the appearance of the first shoots, the boxes are placed in a warm place, with a temperature regime of 18 - 20 ° C. As soon as the first sprouts appear, the container is transferred to the window sill, which should be well illuminated by sunlight and have an air temperature of 10 - 12 ° C.
After the seedlings form 5 strong sheets, it is transplanted into open ground.
Requirements for soil for planting
Cabbage "Glory" can grow on all types of soil. But, according to the recommendations of experts, the best yields are possible on fertile loamy soils with a close location of groundwater. The best option is considered Ph soil acidity - 6.7 - 7.4.
Cabbage is desirable to plant in those places where it grew before:
Bad predecessors are:
It is also not recommended to plant cabbage on the same plot annually. The interval between plantings should be 3-4 years.
Grade care after planting
Many novice vegetable growers, when transplanting cabbage, make irreparable mistakes that, as a result, lead to the formation of a flower shoot. To avoid this, you should not admit:
- thick planting seedlings
- shadowing of the landing site
- excess moisture.
In order for vegetable culture to develop properly in open ground, it is necessary to carry out agrotechnical work in a timely manner. Care includes:
- Watering. Cabbage is a moisture-loving crop, so its irrigation should be carried out at least 7 - 8 times a month.
- Loosening. In order for the plant to receive enough oxygen, after each watering, it is necessary to mulch the soil.
- Hilling. This procedure will contribute to the formation of root shoots, due to which the vegetable will receive more nutrients.
- Feeding. For additional trace elements, 2 weeks after planting in the soil, it is recommended to apply nitrogen fertilizers. During the formation of forks - phosphorus and potash minerals.
But, despite the observance of all agrotechnical works, a decrease in yields or its complete absence, various diseases can also result
The main characteristics of the variety
Glory belongs to the category of mid-ripening varieties of white cabbage. It was obtained as a result of the work of domestic breeders in the last century, who crossed varieties brought from abroad, and very quickly gained popularity throughout the USSR. It is believed that the most useful components found in the cabbage varieties Slava. Its characteristics are as follows:
- heads of cabbage are slightly flat or round,
- outer leaves are light green and wavy at the edges,
- inside the forks have white crunchy leaves.
The variety includes two subspecies: Gribovsky 231 and Glory 1305, which have minor differences from each other. The first variant matures about 100 days after germination; forks weigh on average about 3 kg. The average yield per square meter is about 10 kg. And the second subspecies matures about 2 weeks later than the first, but it weighs much more - up to 9 kg and has a higher yield. But the forks of this subspecies are worse preserved and not as dense as the other.Slava likes regular watering, but can be grown in the soil that is not wet enough in dry places, and therefore has become so widespread. And also it is perfect for fermentation for the winter, because it has excellent taste and contains sugar in sufficient quantities.
Fresh cabbage is recommended after harvesting to be consumed during the autumn, but it can be stored until winter or even until spring, if you follow the rules for storing vegetables. It is advisable for this purpose to choose dry places.
Cabbage Slava refers to the middle-ripened variety of white cabbage, since the head of cabbage is formed 110-125 days after germination. Being a moisture-loving plant, the cabbage variety Slava is distinguished by a good tolerance of moisture deficiency.
According to the official description, Slava cabbage gives a high yield of up to 12.5 kg / m2. Gardeners liked this variety of cabbage for its excellent taste and ability to resist the main diseases affecting cabbage.
The shape of the heads of the rounded or rounded flat. The weight of heads varies from 2.5 to 4.5 kg. The cabbage leaves are externally pale green in color, and white in the cut.
Cabbage Glory is well transported, can be stored for up to 3 months, does not crack. It has a good presentation, and therefore successfully implemented at the trading counter.
The taste of fresh cabbage can be enjoyed until the beginning of January, but it is also good in the sour form.
Characteristic cabbage: Slava 1305 and Slava Gribovskaya 231
There are two types of cabbage varieties Slava: 1305 and Gribovskaya 231. Consider briefly the characteristics of the types of cabbage Slava:
- Slava Gribovskaya 231. The formation of a head of cabbage takes 100-110 days after planting seedlings into the ground. The ripened heading weighing 2-3 kg has a good density and has a rounded shape. According to the catalog describing varieties of cabbage, Slava Gribovskaya yields a yield of 6.6 to 8.9 kg per 1 square meter. The leaf structure is fine wrinkled, the edge is smooth, the color is dark green with a slight waxy coating. Valued for its unpretentiousness to the soil and better tolerance of moisture deficiency.
- Glory 1305. Matures 14 days later than the previous species, but is characterized by higher yield and resistance to cracking. It has the best resistance to mucous bacteriosis. Heads of cabbage give larger (3-5 kg), but less dense. Stored somewhat worse, because it deteriorates faster.
Both species are grown for consumption in the fall and fermentation.
Growing cabbage Glory
In order for the harvest to please the gardener, it is necessary to take into account the main requirements for growing cabbage Glory:
- Cabbage Glory grown seedlings and seedless methods.
- Cabbage seeds Slava are planted on seedlings in unheated greenhouses covered with foil or under tunnel shelter in the beds of the first half of April.
- The optimum temperature for planting seeds is 12-18 C.
- To seedlings grow well, one plant needs an area of 25 cm.kv.
- The seedling is ready for planting in the ground, if 5-6 true leaves have been formed on it, and it has reached a height of 15 cm. As a rule, this moment comes in mid-May - early June.
- Before transferring the seedlings to open ground, it should be hardened for 6-8 days.
- For landing in the ground choose a sunny area.
- Landing plan: 60x60 cm.
- 2-3 hours before transplanting seedlings into the ground, the bed is watered abundantly with water.
Separately, you must specify the features of soil preparation for transplanting seedlings:
- Cabbage Slava likes subacid fertile soil with a pH close to 6. If the pH value is too high, you should liming the soil,
- Cabbage Glory will grow well if its predecessors were potatoes, legumes or perennial herbs,
- since autumn, the soil is well digged and fresh manure is introduced (70-80 kg / sq.m) or humus (40-50 kg / sq. m.),
- before planting seeds, spread the soil with a rake.
Let us consider in more detail the process of planting cabbage seeds Slava under tunnel shelters:
- семена высаживают в предварительно сделанные бороздки глубиной 1-1,5 см, расположенные на расстоянии 7-8 см друг от друга,
- the planted seeds are watered and covered with mats, which are not removed until the first shoots appear,
- after the appearance of the first leaf, the seedlings are thinned out so that between adjacent plants there is 5 cm of free space,
- water the seedlings as the soil dries.
To seedlings grew strong, it must be fed in time. Top dressing occurs in two stages:
- Stage 1. The first dressing is carried out when 2 true leaves form on the seedlings. For the preparation of a mixture of fertilizers use superphosphate (6 g), ammonium nitrate (5 g) and potassium chloride (2 g) per 1 square meter of soil. The resulting mixture is scattered between the beds and well watered.
- Stage 2. The turn of the second feeding comes a week after the first. Seedlings for transplanting into the soil is ready in 30-35 days.
Top dressing cabbage Slava carried out in 3 stages:
- Stage 1. After 2 weeks after planting the seedlings into the ground, they make the first top dressing of the plant with fermented mullein solution: 5-6 bushes spend 1 bucket per 10 liters.
- Stage 2. The second feeding takes place during the period of heading. Wood ash (50 g per bucket) is already added to the mullein solution.
- Stage 3. The third dressing is performed 3-4 weeks after the previous one using the same technology.
A good characteristic of cabbage Glory is worth it to make it a place in your garden. Simple process of growing and caring for cabbage. Glory will be rewarded with the excellent taste of such a popular and healthy vegetable.
Characterize the "Glory"
Cabbage "Glory" is considered mid-season, since the forks themselves are formed on average for 110 -125 days after germination. Despite the fact that this culture is quite moisture-loving, the "Glory" suffers a lack of moisture quite tolerably.
The head has a rounded, slightly flattened form. The diameter of the plugs is about a quarter of a meter, and its weight is from 2 to 4.5 kilograms. The cabbage flesh has a light shade, the leaves are externally green-green in color, and white in the cut.
The official characteristic of the cabbage variety Slava speaks of a high yield equal to a dozen kilograms per square meter. And the excellent taste and good stability of the main diseases of the culture were already to the liking of many who planted this cabbage.
You can taste the cabbage beauty until the New Year holidays, it is also good in a sour way. Success vegetable enjoys and sales. He is not afraid of transportation and crackle, and it can be stored for three months.
About two types of "Glory"
Cabbage "Glory" is different in two varieties: Gribovskoy 231 and 1305. The first involves the formation of a head for 100-110 days after the emergence of seedlings. As for the cabbage "Glory 1305", it ripens 15 days later. True, this option is valued more for higher yield and greater resistance to cracking.
The "Glory Gribovskoy 231" also has its advantages. It has more dense forks, on average its weight is under 3 kilograms, and the collection per square meter is about 9 kilograms. In variant 1305, cabbages grow to 5 kilograms, and the yield is 12 kilograms, but the density is lower and storage is less long.
On the proper cultivation of cabbage varieties "Glory"
Planting and caring for "Glory" have certain rules. Most often, cabbage is grown with seedlings. When buying seeds, it is important to understand the presence of presowing treatment, which should be indicated on the appropriate bag. If the treatment has not occurred, then cabbage seeds before sowing are prepared by the gardener himself.
Seeds stand for half a day in a solution of potassium humate and water in the proportion of 1 gram - 1 liter, then washed and tempered at a temperature of 2 degrees.
Now the seeds are ready for sowing, for which there is also its own method. Seed for seedlings are grown in the greenhouse or in the open ground under plastic wrap. Sowing is done in the second spring month with an optimum temperature of 13-17 degrees. The seeds are then placed in a groove width of one and a half centimeters and with an interval of 7 centimeters between the rows.
Seedlings should be thinned when the first leaf appears, so that the plants grow from each other at a distance of 5 cm. It is important to prevent soil drying: the seedlings should be watered when they are dried in open ground. A separate sapling requires an area of 25-26 square meters. When the second sheet appears, start the first feeding.
Stages feeding cabbage "Glory"
One square meter of land suggests the following composition:
- 5 grams of superphosphate,
- 4 grams of ammonium nitrate,
- 2 grams of potassium chloride.
This mixture of dry properties is distributed between the rows, and then watering the cabbage is carried out. The procedure must be repeated in a week.
Plants that have reached a height of 15 cm and formed 5-6 sheets are ready to appear in open ground. The bed should be watered a couple of hours before seating a landing. For cultivation choose a place with good sunlight, and for planting adhere to the scheme 60 x 60 cm.
Closer to September, a bed that should grow this cabbage variety is fertilized with humus or manure. Each square meter should have 10 liters of liquid organic matter and a couple glasses of ash. Low acid soil is optimal for this variety.
As for the regions of the southern part of Russia, it is possible to grow the described culture without any problems by direct sowing into the earth to a depth of 2 cm. For the first time, the thinning process is carried out after the appearance of the third leaf. And after three more sheets, another thinning is necessary to organize a distance of 60 cm between adjacent plants.
In terms of collection, the forks are ready when they reach an average size, sufficient density and no cracks. Storage of the harvested culture occurs at zero temperature and 90 percent humidity. The best option for storage would be hanging the forks to wooden fixtures in the basement and attic rooms. It is also possible to place cabbage in wooden-type boxes, where “Glory” also feels comfortable
Variety description includes the features of the fight against attacks of various parasites and defects. For the convenience of orientation in them, especially for novice gardeners, we give below the most common misfortunes to which cabbage culture is exposed and how to defeat them.
Enemy # 1 - Cabbage Chila
This disease is the most common in the described culture, the cause of which is the fungus. The obvious signs of the beginning of the disease will be the appearance of seals on the root system. If time does not recognize or treat this attack, then root rotting will occur. Outwardly, this nuisance appears as an abnormal development of the germ.
In order to prevent the appearance of the keel, we need certain measures in the form of competently performing weeding of cabbage beds, removing all weeds from the planting area after the heads are collected. It is important to destroy large debris outside the garden and the city. Also, when sowing, it is recommended to add slaked lime to the soil. 15 days before planting soil treatment is carried out using formalin.
Be sure to follow the rules of crop rotation. The place where the cabbage lived a year later, in the current year it is not suitable for it.
We emphasize that if the disease has spread to young cultures, then, unfortunately, they should be eliminated, as they are not amenable to treatment. But with the fulfillment of all the listed rules of prevention, the cultivation of cabbage Glory will pass without defeating the keel.
Enemy # 2 - Black Kila
Another nuisance to cabbage and its owners is the black keel, which is also associated with fungal nature. The disease is recognized by the thinning of the stems and blackness closer to the root. The result is sad - the cabbage dies. This disease, like the previous one, cannot be defeated, but if preventive measures are carried out promptly, the disease will not occur. For this we need the following actions:
- Avoid excessive gulf sprouting
- Avoid strong plant density,
- Before soil sowing to carry out the treatment of seed with potassium permanganate.
- In the case of the germ defeat of this defect, immediately get rid of it: this will help in further spreading to the whole cabbage patch.
Enemy number 3 - powdery mildew
Another enemy of cabbage is powdery mildew. The first manifestations of the disease include the occurrence of spots of yellow color on the leaves, and the back side of the vegetable will demonstrate a touch of whitish color. To avoid this defect, it is necessary to organize the soaking of seeds before planting.
The good news is that you can fight this disease. There are special tools. So, sick sprouts are sprayed with copper sulfate, and as a preventive measure, a three-time identical procedure with crushed sulfur. With the defeat of the young, we get rid of it in an operational way in order to avoid the defeat of the whole ridge with cabbage.
Enemy # 4 - aphid invasion
In addition to these defects, the described variety may be attacked by insects. And the main one will be cabbage aphid. Cabbage foliage will tell about this trouble, which will begin to bleach and curl.
To this attack did not spoil your mood, next to the cabbage is better to put the greens - parsley or dill, which will attract the ladybirds that they would not like to include in the diet and aphids.
About the advantages and disadvantages of "Glory"
From the very beginning of its appearance, the non-black-earth region played a significant role in the development of Russia. The breeding of the described cabbage variety is primarily directed to this vast part of the Russian Federation. This is evidenced by the numerous descriptions of culture in garden reference books.
Frequent rains in the region are well suited for cabbage ripening, even in the case of insufficient soil filling with humus. But it should be noted that the variety "Glory" gives decent results in places where rains are rare. Today this cabbage is recommended, it can be said, on the whole of Russian territory, and also on Georgia and Kazakhstan.
The disadvantages of this variety include its sensitivity to the keel, which affects cabbage roots, not giving the opportunity to the desired development of the plant, as well as the possible acquisition of vascular bacteriosis and fusarium wilt.
But today, with the existing arsenal of tools to combat defects and parasites, as well as with all the pre-sowing measures, as mentioned above, any gardener is able to protect their vegetables.
Positive reviews of gardeners - in the absolute majority. The advantages of cabbage varieties Slava are considered to be good resistance to cold weather, a low degree of formation of peduncles, resistance to cracking, excellent transportability and the possibility of long storage. Therefore, get the seeds of "Glory" and try to enjoy your own result.
Description and characteristics of the variety
Both subspecies of the cabbage variety Slava began to be cultivated in the Russian regions in 1940. They were derived by E. M. Popov as a result of purposeful breeding work carried out at the All-Russia Research Institute of Breeding. Analyzing the characteristics of the oldest Russian albumen varieties (Gribovsky 1305, 231), which are subspecies of Slava cabbage, it should be noted their high yield and quick adaptation to different climatic conditions.
Rounded dense heads of weight up to 3 kg reach the stage of ripeness about 110 days after the first seedlings are planted. Dark green fine-wrinkled leaves with smooth edges are covered with a slight waxy coating. Demonstrates unpretentiousness to the type of soil and the ability to easily tolerate short-term moisture deficiency.
Pros and cons of Glory cabbage
The distribution of cabbage varieties such as Slava in different climatic zones is explained by the following advantages:
- unpretentiousness to soil types,
- early maturation
- adaptation to the conditions of a short drought,
- versatility of a useful vegetable, used both in fresh form, and for making pickles and pickles for future use,
- preservation of elasticity and integrity of the heads without cracking with proper organization of the irrigation regime,
- high yields,
- transportability without loss of commercial quality,
- cold resistance
The disadvantages of cabbage Glory include insufficient keeping quality, expressed in the preservation of fresh forks no longer than four months. The minus is considered to be the cracking of heads in conditions of a rainy summer or with excessively frequent watering.
On the territory of Siberia and in the northern regions, night frosts quite often occur in the first half of June. To avoid their destructive effects, the plantation of cabbage after planting shoots covered with a film, lifting it above the surface of the beds. With an unfavorable prognosis, it is recommended to carry out preventive watering of plants. Wet soil retains heat and allows young shoots to resist lower temperatures.
When dry weather is established, a cabbage bed is watered up to eight times during the entire growing season with plenty of water. This allows you to form tight cabbages. If you increase the frequency of watering, mature plugs will begin to crack. For every square meter you need to pour out 20 liters of water.
If an active ripening of the inner part of the heads is noted by the appearance of cracks on the covering leaves, it is recommended to carefully rotate the plant in order to tear off part of the roots. Such a measure will reduce the absorption of nutrients contained in the water solution and stop the excessive increase in fork sizes.
Cracking is also observed when planting cabbage in lowlands with excessive soil moistening. In this situation, for the next season you need to find another place on a small hill. Three weeks before the planned felling of heads of harvesting, it is stopped to moisten the soil under cabbage plants.
Necessary to obtain the projected yield of cabbage Glory dressing is carried out in several stages:
- 15 days after planting, plant a 1-liter jug of a mullein in a ten-liter bucket of water and spill this volume of organic matter, distributing it in equal parts to 6 bushes.
- During the beginning of the setting of heads in the dissolved mullein, pour wood ash - half a glass on a bucket.
- A month later, repeat the previous dressing.
By obtaining the necessary nutrients cabbage forms elastic forks that meet the standard qualities of juiciness and taste.
Apply seedlings and seed methods of growing cabbage Glory. In any way, its seeds should be prepared with reference to the following algorithm:
- Water is poured into the bowl, heated to 55 ° C, and the seeds are placed. The exposure time is 15 minutes.
- Shift them into cold water for one minute.
- Prepare a solution of 12 g of potassium humate, diluted in 10 liters of water, and pour seeds into it.
- After 12 hours, lay out the grain on a paper napkin.
- Dried seed day is maintained at a temperature of about 2 ° C.
Seed methods are practiced in areas with a warm climate, preparing open beds with loose nutrient soil mixture. They dig up a plot in the fall, adding humus - two buckets per square meter.
In late April, when you need to sow the seeds, the surface of the ridges are loosened with a rake. Spread the grains in the spilled water grooves 20 mm deep. After the formation of the third leaflet, the crops are thinned with an interval of 20 cm. When the sixth leaf appears, remove the superfluous shoots, leaving 60 cm between the plants.
Using seedlings allows you to grow cabbage Slava in regions with unstable weather conditions, preparing a plot with the introduction of humus from autumn. It is better to land in open ground in the first decade of June, when the threat of frost almost disappears. Dig holes, leaving the distance between the plants 0.6 m. In each poured half a bucket of water. When the liquid is fully absorbed into the soil, seedlings are planted.
Peculiarities and difference from other varieties
The difference of this variety from the rest in its unpretentiousness, high degree of protection against pests and diseases, the ability to endure periods of drought, high yields, as well as versatility, because in raw and sour cabbage will have excellent taste and maintain its solid structure.
So that you are convinced of the above facts about the cabbage variety "Glory", we give a more detailed description of it.
By the way, it is well preserved heading up to 3 months, which makes it attractive for market traders. If you grow this variety yourself, then fresh cabbage salad will be on your table until winter frost, of course, subject to certain storage conditions. To save cabbage before winter, you need to dig up the roots in late summer or mid-autumn, clean the bad, dried leaves, and the roots from the ground, discard the rotten copies, dry them for two days, cut the roots (or leave them) and lay them in the cellar.
The indoor climate must meet the following criteria: temperature from +2 to -1 degrees, humidity - no more than 98%.
Относительно урожайности: с участка площадью в 1 квадратный метр можно собрать более 12 килограммов капусты, в то время как сородич «Славы 1305» сорт «Грибовский 231» дает всего лишь 9 килограммов.
Сорт капусты белокочанной «Слава» отлично вырастает в любом грунте. Изначально он выводился для нечерноземной территории, с низким содержанием гумуса. Достигала своих размеров капуста благодаря большому количеству осадков.
Но заметили, что неплохие показатели дает этот сорт и в более засушливых южных регионах. Consequently, we see that this species will produce crops in both the northern and southern parts of Russia.
Growing seedlings and planting in open ground
The yield and health of the cabbage will depend on how well you conduct the seed planting procedure.
Now we will tell about how to properly prepare the seeds. To do this, immerse them in a couple of minutes in hot water. Observe a temperature not exceeding 65 degrees.
Then it is necessary to carry out the hardening procedure. So you save cabbage from possible freezing, as well as low resistance to disease. It is necessary to withstand the seeds at a temperature not lower than +2 degrees for 14 days. Sometimes on the seed packaging the manufacturer indicates that the samples have already undergone the preparation procedure. In this case, you only need to warm the seeds in warm water (no higher than 55 degrees) for about 20 minutes.
After that, the plant will be enough for the day +15. +17 degrees, and at night - only +10. To make planting better in greenhouses or in beds under shelter, and you can do it at home in a tray.
Also note that the soil from your garden, in which other plants grew last year, will not be suitable for growing seedlings. There have already accumulated a lot of infections and bacteria that will hit the roots of seedlings. You will see the result of this approach when the seeds of cabbage sprout - half of them will be weak and unsuitable for further cultivation.
The area for each plant should be at least 2 square centimeters. Two weeks later, a dive is carried out - seedlings are planted in separate containers with a surface area of at least 5 square centimeters.
Deeper stems into the ground to the cotyledons themselves. Now the plant needs light, so it is better to put the lamp and not turn it off, at least 12 hours a day.
An area of 60 square centimeters is required for each seedling. Before planting seedlings in the ground, the soil should be well watered. Consumption is approximately 15 liters per square meter.
As we have already seen cabbage varieties "Glory" in its characteristics is very picky, and this deserves the attention of most gardeners. But an elementary care for her is still required.
