Planting seeds

For early harvest, seeds should be sown in February. Before that, they are allowed to soak in water, which will only improve germination. Prepared seeds are planted under the "two by two" centimeters. The soil must be shed, loosen.

Non-clay soils are recommended. It will be better if you mix peat and sand or get ready-made mix in the store.

Seeding is carried out to a depth of one and a half centimeters, it is not necessary to water after planting.

The box is covered with plastic wrap and until the emergence of shoots nothing is done. As soon as the sprouts start to emerge, the capacity is transferred to the brightest place, the temperature condition in the room should be within twenty-four degrees of heat.

Transplanting tomato seedlings in open ground

There is nothing complicated about it. Transplant is performed according to the "forty-seventy" centimeters. For a greenhouse, this event can be held in April - early May; plants are transferred to unprotected soil taking into account the climatic features of the area.

The hole is arranged on a spade bayonet, a spoon of a complex fertilizer composition or superphosphate mixed with potassium nitrate is poured onto the bottom of it.

In the spring, fresh manure is not used for planting - the seedlings will either “burn”, or they will begin to actively form green mass, reducing the number of fruits. So it is best to bring manure to the beds in the fall, springing up with compost or humus.

Seedlings are transplanted at the age of sixty to seventy days, from which the term for sowing seeds is calculated.

After finishing with a transplant, the plants can be treated with a preparation containing copper.

Agricultural cultivation of tomato

Plants are fed at least three times. The first procedure is carried out fifteen days after transplantation; a mullein or bird droppings are used for this. Some use special medications. The second time should be fed with superphosphate when the inflorescences appear on the second hand. The third feeding is done on the days when the first tomatoes begin to ripen. At this time, it is best to bring a mullein, adding to it complex fertilizer preparations.

Watering is done as needed, as the plant does not like excessive moisture. For greenhouse conditions in a hot summer, this procedure is performed once every ten days. The process is accompanied by loosening the soil, hilling, removal of weeds.

If the seedlings are very stretched, it should be planted "lying", laying on the edge of the hole.
