Cultivation of Pekinese cabbage

Chinese cabbagePeking cabbage is very tender, so you need to know the characteristics of its cultivation, in the end, to achieve a good harvest. First of all, one should pay attention to the fact that Peking cabbage does not tolerate a transplant, so experienced gardeners recommend growing seedlings in pots or cassettes or direct seeding into open ground. In addition, you should pay attention to the cold weather, which contributes to the formation of head, so it is better that the period of plant growth fell on early spring or autumn, in hot weather the plant forms a flower-sprouting shoot.

Cultivation of Peking cabbage does not differ much from the usual - it likes fertile moisture-containing land with acidity pH 5,5-7. The best precursor cultures are onions, tomatoes, beans, and snederas. Soil must contain the necessary useful elements for good growth and development of the plant, so they fertilize the site for cabbage from autumn. For each sotok make up to 500 kilograms of organic fertilizers (compost, humus), and with soil acidity greater than the specified standards, liming is carried out.

The best way to grow Peking cabbage is seedling. Seedlings are planted in the open ground around mid-April. Young plants are planted in the wells, which are placed at a distance of 40 centimeters from each other. For a good concentration of nutrients in the soil, humus and wood ash is added to each well, followed by watering and planting the pot with the plant.

When planting seedlings in the early period, you should cover the bed with agrofiber or other covering material. This will create optimal conditions for plant growth; The nights in the spring are cold, and the cover material will retain heat.

Loosening of the soil around the plant is carried out as weeds appear or for the purpose of loosening the soil after heavy rains. It is also possible to loosen the soil before watering, this will promote good absorption of moisture by plant roots.

Plant watering is carried out depending on the weather. When the drought is enough, two times a week. Experienced gardeners recommend the use of warm water, which is reflected in the overall development of the plant. Cold water can contribute to the development of cabbage diseases.

The amount of fertilizing depends on the plant's need for useful elements. If the land is sufficiently fertilized and the plants have an excellent appearance, then there is no need for additional fertilizing. Otherwise, the infusion of mullein (1: 10). For each bush will spend a liter of solution.

Usually, the harvest of Peking cabbage is harvested at the end of May or in October, depending on the time of planting the crop. It should be remembered that this variety of cabbage is not subject to long storage, so the harvest is better to use quickly.
