Cabbage is a capricious crop that requires optimal conditions, sufficient moisture, quality fertilization, and light. There are many tips on growing this nutritious vegetable online but not all of them are effective.

OBOZ.UA tells you about an effective life hack that will help you reap a bountiful harvest. Experienced gardeners say that cabbage will grow big and strong.

How to improve the cabbage harvest

Experts advise picking off the lower leaves of cabbage. First of all, this is necessary to prevent the development of diseases.

The lower leaves are usually in contact with the soil, which can contain pathogens, fungal spores, and pathogens. Thus, removing the leaves reduces the risk of infection.

This life hack will also help protect cabbage from slugs that like to eat juicy leaves.

Another advantage is the stimulation of growth. It is believed that cutting off the lower leaves promotes active and high-quality growth. At the same time, the plant's energy will not be spent on maintaining the extra layer, and the bush will be able to direct more of its resources to the growth and development of the upper parts.

So, according to one theory, cutting off the lower layer optimizes growth and improves yields. But there is another theory: some experts say that removing the leaves from the cabbage also takes away some of the nutrients that the plant uses to form heads of cabbage.

Whether or not to cut off the bottom layer is up to you. If you decide to cut it off, do so very carefully so as not to damage the stems and upper parts of the plant.
