Planting and caring for Hurricane cabbage
Hurricane F1 is a cold-resistant variety that allows sowing seeds directly into open ground. But, despite this, the cultivation of this garden crop by direct sowing into the soil is recommended only in the southern climatic regions. In areas with an unstable climate, it is best to grow Hurricane cabbage using seedlings.
Ready seedlings are planted in open ground in mid-May. In this case, the seedling must have at least 4 leaves and be 15-20 cm high. 3 weeks after planting, the seedlings must be spud. After 10 days, the hilling procedure is recommended to be repeated.
Advice! With the threat of return spring frosts, open crops must be protected with covering material.
The Hurricane hybrid prefers nutritious soil, so the beds intended for planting should be fertilized with organic matter in the fall. Top dressing with mineral fertilizers should be carried out only when the composition of the soil is known. Hurricane cabbage does not do well on soils with an excess of nitrogen.
It is quite easy to care for a hybrid, since mature plants have a powerful and strong root system. The main thing is to water the plantings in a timely manner, carry out top dressing (3 times per season), loosen the soil and remove weeds. Hurricane cabbage tolerates a lack of moisture easily, but the yield is significantly reduced, because the heads of cabbage will be of medium or small size.
The density of planting plants is 40-45 thousand pieces. per 1 ha

Reviews about cabbage Hurricane F1
Valentina, 41 years old, Voronezh
Cabbage is one of the main vegetable crops in my beds. I plant both proven varieties and new Dutch selection. Sowed Hurricane F1 cabbage seeds last year, hoping to get a good harvest. The hybrid fully met all my expectations. The heads of cabbage grew large and were kept very well. Throughout the autumn and winter, our family enjoyed delicious and vitamin-rich cabbage dishes. I will definitely plant a Hurricane next year in order to get an excellent vegetable harvest on time. I give the grade "excellent" and recommend it to all gardeners.

I have been growing Hurricane cabbage for three years, and it suits me completely. The germination rate is always excellent, the yield is at a height, the taste is excellent. The culture is quite resistant to diseases and pests. Hurricane cabbage does not need special care. It is enough to carry out a set of standard measures - weeding, loosening and watering. Cabbage heads are very elastic, they are kept juicy in the cellar until spring. Ideal for both fresh consumption and for pickling and pickling.
