Where to plant cabbage

Following the rules of crop rotation is an important guarantee of a bountiful harvest. Soil can become depleted and it will take some time to recover. But that's not the only problem. Some crops planted side by side will compete for nutrients, suppressing each other's growth. Another common problem is common diseases and pests.

For example, it is better not to plant peas near tomatoes. Sweet peppers and legumes are susceptible to anthracnose, so they will infect each other with this type of fungus. Raspberries can not be planted next to strawberries and cherries. Especially important is crop rotation and proper proximity for cabbage. Read after what plants not to plant cabbage in the material OBOZREVATEL.

Where not to plant cabbage

Experienced gardeners do not recommend planting cabbage in a bed where potatoes used to grow. Potatoes take away a lot of nutrients from the soil. In fact, cabbage will have nothing left next year.

White cabbage will yield poorly in beds where other varieties of cabbage, particularly cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, Chinese cabbage, and broccoli, grew last year. These crops are prone to the same diseases and vulnerable to the same pests.

In addition, you should not plant cabbage in beds where they were growing:

  • tomatoes
  • eggplants
  • peppers.

This is also associated with soil depletion.

Legumes, particularly beans and peas, "suck" all the nitrogen from the ground, vital to cabbage.


Proper crop rotation for cabbage

Cabbage is recommended to be planted in beds where the following crops used to grow:

  • beets
  • carrots
  • cucumbers
  • onions
  • garlic.

These plants do not deplete the soil too much, it will have enough vitamins and micronutrients to grow cabbage.

You can also plant cabbage after greens and sorrel.

And in beds where cabbage grew last year, you should plant:

  • beets
  • carrots
  • potatoes
  • zucchinis
  • onions
  • garlic
  • peas
  • dill and parsley.
