There is no better way to get a bountiful harvest than to feed cabbage for growth with folk remedies. Experienced gardeners know that feeding with mullein, potato or banana peels will bring undoubted benefits in the garden.
How to feed cabbage after planting in the ground
Additional feeding with competent preparation of the ridges is required no earlier than a month later. This is due to the presence of all the necessary fertilizers, contributing to the rapid adaptation and development of plants. If the holes were not prepared in advance, then the cabbage should be fertilized within a week after transplanting to a permanent place. The first feeding is carried out with nitrogenous fertilizers.
For the first time, the following are optimal:
- ammonium nitrate;
- potassium humate;
- wood ash;
Acidic soils require slaked lime, chalk or wood ash. They are used at the rate of 2 glasses of solution per 1 square meter of area. A decrease in acidity stimulates plant growth and prevents the development of keel.
Top dressing with manure
Fertilizing with manure is the most common type of fertilization for plants in the open field. Mullein is used on large and small household plots. Its advantage is availability and safety. The mullein contains large quantities of potassium, nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, boron, and iron.
All substances are in an accessible and quickly assimilated form. In the fall, humus is added to the ridges. During the winter, he has time to completely overheat. In the summer, semi-rotten manure is used. A mullein-based solution is used to fertilize the cabbage. For its preparation, 1 part of manure and 10 parts of water are used. The solution is well mixed and infused for a week. Fertilization is carried out in 3 stages. The first - in July during hilling, the second - 3 weeks after the first, the third - at the end of August, if late varieties are grown.
Chicken droppings for feeding seedlings
Chicken droppings for feeding cabbage are organic fertilizers. In terms of nitrogen content, it is several times higher than mullein.
The benefits of feeding with droppings include:
- acceleration of maturation;
- increased productivity;
- increasing plant resistance to bacterial and fungal diseases;
- prevention of mold formation on the soil surface;
- improvement of soil properties;
- long-term effect;
- balanced plant nutrition.
In the garden, liquid concentrated feed from chicken manure is often used. A barrel is used for its preparation. In it, chicken manure and water are mixed in a 1: 1 ratio. The mass is thoroughly mixed and insisted under a tightly closed lid for 3 days. Finished top dressing is stored throughout the season. When used, it is diluted from a ratio of 1 liter of concentrate to 10 liters of water.
The agent is applied under the bushes and between the ridges several times per season. This type of feeding is suitable for cabbage and other types of vegetables or flowers.
Egg shells for feeding
Eggshells are one of the readily available and common natural products for bed fertilization. It is used when it is necessary to normalize acidic soil. The procedure requires a large shell volume. For this reason, eggs are harvested starting in autumn.
The shells are stored in a dry room in whole or crushed. Powder is used for fertilizing cabbage seedlings after transferring seedlings to open ground. It is added to freshly dug wells. The presence of calcium nourishes the roots and promotes the active development of seedlings.
Egg shells are used as fertilizer in the fight against the bear. A striking sign of a lack of calcium in plants is the presence of white spots on cabbage leaves.
Hydrogen peroxide for cabbage growth
Hydrogen peroxide is actively used not only for indoor plants, but also in the garden. It is actively used for watering and spraying cabbage seedlings at different stages of growth.
Hydrogen peroxide allows you to:
- rid seedlings of harmful bacteria;
- accelerate plant growth;
- protect the root system from rotting;
- saturate the soil with oxygen;
- cure diseases.
The benefit of the drug lies in the similarity of an aqueous solution with melt water. Hydrogen peroxide contains atomic oxygen, which oxidizes the soil, saturates it with oxygen, and fights against pathogenic bacteria.
The solution is prepared at the rate of 1 liter of water and 2 tablespoons of peroxide. Plants are watered once every 5-6 days. Hydrogen peroxide has a positive effect on soil quality. In addition to feeding grown plants, hydrogen peroxide is used to soak seeds at the time of planting.
Positive properties of potassium permanganate
Potassium permanganate is actively used by gardeners for antiseptic treatment. It is used at the stage of planting seeds, soil preparation. The substance has a strong antiseptic effect and allows you to effectively fight against pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Not all gardeners know if potassium permanganate can be used as fertilizer. It turns out that with the right dosage, it can stimulate the ripening of fruits, improve the synthesis of chlorophyll, ascorbic acid and sugars in plants.
Potassium permanganate for feeding cabbage is used in the middle of summer, when the plants are actively gaining green mass and forming heads of cabbage. Manganese, 3 grams, is diluted in 10 liters of water. Exceeding the dosage leads to burns of the root system and plant leaves. The prepared solution is applied under the root of each bush. It is also suitable for spraying plant leaves. The procedures are carried out in calm weather in the evening or morning, without direct sunlight.
Alternative feeding options
Cabbage has a positive attitude to various types of feeding. More and more gardeners are choosing natural methods. Their advantage is environmental friendliness, availability and low cost. In addition to the listed methods, baking soda, potatoes, banana peel, boric acid, and yeast are actively used in garden plots as a top dressing for cabbage.
- Baking soda. The introduction of a soda solution has a positive effect on young plants. For 5 liters of water, 10 grams of soda is used. The mixture is suitable for both root watering and leaf treatment. In the autumn, spraying with soda contributes to a longer storage of the heads of cabbage.
- Brewer's yeast. Brewer's yeast is usually paired with golden woody top dressing. This combination is necessary for the normalization of calcium in the soil. To prepare a solution, 20 grams of yeast is mixed with 150 grams of coarse sand and 5 liters of water. The mixture is infused for 7 days. For 10 liters of water use 1 glass of yeast water.
- Boric acid. Cabbage loves boric acid. If the plants are sprayed with the prepared solution during the period of the ovary of heads of cabbage, then they turn out to be larger. Boric acid promotes plant growth and yield formation intensity.
As an experienced gardener notes: “I feed the plants with folk remedies several times a season. They always respond with a bountiful harvest and the absence of diseases and pests. " The main thing is, before feeding the cabbage, to determine what it lacks at the moment.
