Attention! Sowing seeds should be done 50 days before planting seedlings in the ground.

Sowing dates

Sowing cabbage seeds for seedlings is an important point. Many gardeners are guided by the lunar calendar. According to the rules, seeds are sown with the growing moon. In 2018, according to the calendar, March 7, 8, 18, 20-21 will be favorable for sowing cabbage.


Wooden and plastic boxes, containers, peat pots, tablets can be used as containers for seedlings. The choice of containers depends on whether you will dive seedlings or not.

If the boxes or containers are new, then they are simply washed with warm water and soap. When containers have been used for several years in a row, they will have to be thoroughly treated with boiling water with potassium permanganate, boric acid or ordinary baking soda.

Many gardeners use cups rolled from newspaper to get seedlings without picking, as in the photo below. The convenience of such a container is that the root system is not injured in the same way as in cassettes. But most importantly, such containers are obtained free of charge.

Soil preparation

When self-preparing the soil for cabbage seedlings, take in equal parts garden soil, compost or humus, sand, and also a little wood ash. In this case, the plants will have enough food. You can use a store-bought potting mix that has balanced nutrients.

Regardless of which soil is chosen, it must be prepared for sowing seeds. Each gardener has his own methods. Let's consider the most common:

  1. Calcining the soil in an oven or oven. The earth is poured into a thin layer on a sheet and heated at a temperature of at least 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Disinfection with boiling water. Potassium permanganate crystals are added to boiling water, mixed. The solution should have a deep pink color. They cultivate all the soil without leaving a dry place.

Advice! It is necessary to prepare the soil two weeks before sowing seeds for seedlings.


Before sowing, the seeds of white cabbage Zimovka 1474 (photos and characteristics are given in the article) are selected, disinfected in a solution of salt or potassium permanganate. Then washed in clean water.

To accelerate germination and prevent black leg, heat treatment can be carried out. Seeds in gauze are placed in hot water at a temperature of no more than 50 degrees for 15 minutes, then cooled in cold water. The seed is spread out on paper and dried.

Sowing seedlings

The containers are spilled with water, depressions are made no more than 1 cm. Seeds are laid in them. If sowing is carried out in a common nursery, then at a distance of 3-4 cm. When growing seedlings without picking, 2-3 seeds are placed in each glass, cassette or peat tablet. Cover with glass on top to create a greenhouse effect. The glass is removed 5-6 days after germination.

Further care of the seedlings is simple:

  • maintaining the required temperature from 14 to 18 degrees;
  • watering and surface loosening of seedlings;
  • root feeding of seedlings with a light solution of potassium permanganate or an extract of wood ash.

Attention! Ash is also used for foliar feeding, leaves are powdered.

If there is not enough light when growing seedlings, artificial lighting is installed. After all, the wintering variety requires a daylight hours of at least 12 hours. In this case, she grows strong, stocky.

Growing in soil

For cabbage Wintering, a site with loamy soil will be successful. It is advisable to do the preparation in the fall. Compost and humus are introduced into the ground. When digging, the larvae find themselves on the surface and die in winter.

In the spring, the ridges are re-dug up, holes are made two weeks before planting the seedlings. An excellent yield of the variety will be on the ridges where potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, peas or beans were grown in the previous summer.

Warning! After cruciferous crops, wintering cabbage is not planted.

In late May or early June, depending on the climatic characteristics of the region, the seedlings are moved to a permanent place. Holes are dug according to the 60x60 scheme. It is better to plant the cabbage in two lines with a row spacing of at least 70 cm for ease of maintenance. After planting, seedlings are well filled with water.

After the cabbage takes root, you need to water it regularly, loosen the soil, remove weeds and feed it. At first, 2 liters is enough, then as it grows, the amount of water is increased to 10. It should be remembered that abundant watering leads to the death of roots and fungal diseases.

For top dressing (no more than 5 times per season) varieties, infusions of mullein, chicken droppings or fermented green grass are suitable. Root dressing is combined with watering on a pre-moistened soil. This way the nutrients are better absorbed.

Advice! Every ten days, the cabbage is fed Zimovka on the leaves with dry wood ash.

Zimovka started growing cabbage about five years ago. An excellent variety, always gives a stable yield. But the main value is that the shelf life is extended, almost until mid-June we have fresh cabbage in our cellar.

I had 10 bushes, I collected almost 300 kg! And she annoyed, and left fresh. We make salads and stew almost every day. It is stored perfectly, but most importantly, the taste is getting better.
