Seedling growing rules
In order for the yield to be high, seedlings must be grown independently. To do this, you should follow the simple rules of agricultural technology.
The most favorable time for sowing seeds is the end of February or the beginning of March.
- First, the planting material must be lowered for 30 minutes in a solution of potassium permanganate, then the seeds must be dried to a loose state;
- Prepare the soil, pour warm water and make shallow grooves;
- Plant seeds and cover the box with glass (you can use cling film);
- Once a week, the glass should be removed, and the seeds should be sprayed with water at room temperature;
- After the sprouts appear, the glass is removed.
The second important stage is planting seedlings in a permanent place. The soil should be mixed with cow dung or chicken dung. Make shallow holes and plant seedlings. At night, they must be covered until the above-zero temperature is stable.
Throughout the season, it is recommended to apply mineral and organic fertilizers to the bushes. The first feeding is carried out during the period of active growth of tomato bushes.
Mullein or bird droppings can be used as fertilizer. To prepare top dressing, you need to take 5 liters of water and 1 kg of fertilizer, mix thoroughly and water the bushes with the resulting solution.
The second feeding is carried out during the formation of ovaries and flowering. The bushes can be watered with a solution of mullein and superphosphate (1 kg mullein and 25 g superphosphate). Also, plants can be watered with a solution of potassium sulfate (5 g) and nitroammofoska (50 g) per 10 liters of water.
Subsequent dressings are made based on the condition of the bushes. If they are weak and frail, then fertilization should be continued. In the event that the tomatoes began to increase the deciduous mass, and the number of fruits became less, then you need to stop feeding the bushes.
