    Features of growing

    Savoy cabbage is moisture-loving, but relatively resistant to drought. They grow it just like white or red wine. There is a subtlety when transplanting seedlings: about a week before transplanting the seedlings stop watering and just before planting they do abundant watering. Her enemies are the same as any cabbage. To diseases it is more stable than white-celled, and pests touch it less. Unfortunately, it is stored worse than head, it quickly loses its moisture and dries up, but it spoils less when stored than white-cured. Savoy cabbage because of its elegant appearance is often used in mixed decorative and vegetable plantings, in flower beds.

    Savoy cabbage, especially late varieties, can be planted later. Then it is left to hibernate right under the snow. Autumn cold is not terrible to her, on the contrary, it becomes more delicious. In winter, the snow is raked, the heads cut and put in cold water for thawing.
